Techquity at ViVE
Presented by HLTH Foundation
As healthcare marches toward full digitization, integrating health equity considerations into technology and data practices - or techquity - is increasingly important to reducing outcomes disparities and systemic inequities. The practice of techquity is also essential to diversifying innovation, developing a representative workforce and equitable employment policies, which in turn will result in a healthcare system that works better for everyone.
Meet us at the Techquity Stage for a convening of healthcare’s brightest leaders, with big ideas and new knowledge on topics such as designing for health and tech literacy, addressing health disparities through technology, workforce equity and wellness, patient trust, and equitable use of data.
Techquity Impact Pavilion
Located in the center of the ViVE show floor, the Techquity Impact Pavilion features on-point, mission-driven content, take-action exhibits from the HLTH Foundation and networking opportunities to help attendees take full advantage of technology’s promise: equitable, efficient and effective healthcare.

✔️ Techquity for Health Coalition: Convened by the HLTH Foundation, the Coalition monitors and develops standards, best practices, and consistent measures for techquity
✔️ Affinity Meetups: Expand your network and be in community with our affinity partners—non-profit organizations promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in healthcare
Techquity for Health Coalition
The HLTH Foundation, together with strategic partner Ipsos Healthcare and a group of dedicated healthcare partners, has launched the Techquity for Health Coalition. The Coalition evolved out of enthusiasm for the promise of digitization to democratize care access and more effectively address health disparities, and concern that failure to integrate a techquity practice into healthcare could lead to entrenchment of systemic inequities. It will focus on establishing this practice and monitoring industry progress through research.
The Coalition is conducting a benchmark survey exploring techquity in healthcare and will release initial results at ViVE 2023.
The Techquity for Health survey is open until April 15, 2023
