"As MLK stated, ‘Of all forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most shocking and the most inhuman.’ All of us in healthcare must continue to improve equitable access to quality care according to the patient. Innovating Medicaid in all states is a key part of that equation which we can do more effectively through focus on shared, pertinent outcomes, unbiased data analysis, process improvement and collaboration."
