Reconsidering Race in Clinical Algorithms:

Driving Equity through New Models in Research and Implementation

Tuesday, June 27, 2023  |  Washington, DC

Lack of consistency in the consideration of race in clinical algorithm design is impacting health equity. While the factor of race may be relevant in some models, in others race is immaterial at best, and at worst may actually exacerbate health disparities. It is time to re-examine and bring rigor to the consideration of race in clinical algorithms.

The Doris Duke Foundation, in partnership with the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the Council of Medical Specialty Societies, and the National Academy of Medicine invited thought leaders across medicine, research, technology, patient advocacy, and policy to explore current field efforts, challenges, and timely opportunities to bolster actions for more rigorous consideration of race in the design, implementation, and monitoring of clinical algorithms.
