The highly infectious COVID-19 is easily spread regardless of race, education, or income level. Racial and ethnic disparities in disease prevalence and mortality have persisted. Researchers are playing a big role in documenting these inequalities and proposing much-needed solutions.

In this new blog, April M. Falconi, PhD, MPH, a Senior Researcher in Population Health and Translational Research with HealthCore, Inc. describes their recent findings on racial and ethnic inequities in COVID-19 using recent data.

This represents one of few studies that uses data from a diverse population collected from a large, national insurer that covers millions of lives across all 50 states.

Read the blog to learn more about racial and ethnic disparities in COVID infections and outcomes.

  • Inequities in testing, hospitalization, and deaths
  • Test positivity rates

Recommendations and solutions are proposed for healthcare payors and medical stakeholders to help advance long-overdue changes to create a better future for all.
