Our commitment to advancing health equity

Wolters Kluwer is committed to supporting health equity and advancing best care through four key tenets: enablers that must work together to make the best care everywhere available to everyone, anywhere, at any time.

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.

Expand Access

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.

Putting our commitment to health equity into practice

Advancing health equity means identifying tactical ways we can support the delivery of safe and equitable care across our health solutions, services, partners, and employees.
