Academy Provides AHRQ with Input on Health Equity

05/10/2021 - The Academy supports the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s request for input to ensure clinical care practices are optimized for all patients, regardless of demographics. The Academy offered examples of, and context surrounding, algorithms which may introduce bias in health care delivery, such as modifying composition of MNT based on personal preferences and adjusting anthropomorphic cutoff values, notably in bone scans. The Academy looks forward to will update members on the agency report as it becomes available.
