The growing partnership between healthcare and technology holds huge promise, but it also highlights rising concerns around ‘techquity’: the design and deployment of healthcare technology in a way that is equitable and inclusive.

Against this backdrop, Ipsos partnered with the HLTH Foundation (a non-profit that promotes equity, inclusion and opportunity in healthcare) to shine a light on existing health tech-related inequities in the US and identify opportunities for the industry to address techquity gaps.

The resulting report, “The Path to Techquity,” summarises our industry and patient level research and includes expert perspectives from healthcare and technology leaders. It is intended to serve as a call-to-action for industry organisations and leaders. The report also introduces the Industry Techquity benchmark survey, a collaboration between Ipsos and HLTH, to benchmark industry awareness, investment, and action on techquity.

This report was presented at the ViVE 2022 Conference and findings from the benchmarking survey will be presented at ViVE 2023.
