Aligning Across Sectors: Key Considerations for Measuring Equity
This brief provides guidance on what indicators may be helpful for measuring equity in individual collaboratives or across aligning contexts. Focusing on equity — both in terms of equitable processes and in terms of equitable outcomes — is commonly cited by practitioners and researchers as a central ethic of many collaboratives and as a key factor shaping aligning successes and failures.
Researchers note it is important to consider how equity is defined and what strategies are implemented to achieve equity.
Aligning Systems for Health: Health Care + Public Health + Social Services, supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and managed by the Georgia Health Policy Center, is focused on learning from stakeholders across the nation about effective ways to align these three sectors to better meet people’s goals and needs.
