The COVID-19 pandemic illuminated more clearly than ever the importance and urgency for having accurate demographic data to better identify and reduce disparities. We believe improving demographic data standards and aligning at an ecosystem level through such policy changes is crucial to advance equity. An aligned and standardized approach to interoperable demographic data will empower the health care ecosystem to collaborate on shared health equity goals, measure progress towards those goals, and better serve individuals and communities. With consistent and interoperable data standards, great strides can be made in reducing inequities while improving outcomes and minimizing the data burden placed on individuals and on the larger health care ecosystem.
