Make Decisions Based on Best Evidence
Consistent and trusted evidence must be available at the point of care, point of discovery, point of reference, and point of learning.
People should have access to care and health data regardless of where they live, their ability to access in-person care, or care across healthcare systems.
Tailor Care to Individual Needs
Optimized outcomes for everyone based on their individual situation and needs. Broaden learning to train for inclusion and tap artificial intelligence (AI) for individualized patient engagement.
Ensure Fair & Equitable Health Opportunities (DE&I)
Regardless of social determinants, all people are entitled to equitable health opportunities and resources in order to be healthy and empowered.
