Bridging the Gap 
Empowering communities and innovators to eradicate health disparities

The Problem

Healthcare is broken for our most vulnerable communities, leading to worse health outcomes and is costing the US billions in unnecessary spending 

Distrust due to the lack of culturally competent care and poor health literacy 

70% of minorities, LGBTQ+ individuals, and people with disabilities distrust the healthcare system 

 

56% don't even understand their benefits

11% of physicians are Black and Hispanic, while 32% of the population is represented by those communities

Fragmented care given hundreds of health, social, and community benefits

<50% of providers feel equipped to coordinate care with specialists,

community, and social resources.

 

67% of patients believe every step of healthcare is inconvenient 

 

60% of employers are overwhelmed by managing complex benefits programs

Ultimately leading to worse health outcomes and unnecessary spending 

Low-income and minorities are 2x more likely to have and die from chronic conditions 

According to a report by Deloitte, health disparities are driving $320B today in unnecessary spending and have the potential to surpass $1Tn by 2024
