Does the work incorporate equity?

This project focuses on equity in two ways. First, it evaluates for any disparities in eHealth literacy among UCM orthopaedic patients. Second, this project examines the effect of eHealth literacy on the completion of a computerized patient-reported outcome measure utilized in routine care of orthopaedic patients. Failure to complete this patient-reported outcome measure could lead to exacerbation of health inequities and suboptimal care due to inaccurate representations of patients populations and their health.

Does this work address any of the UChicago Medicine quality priorities as listed on the Clinical Excellence Scorecard?
