Diversity, Equity and Innovation: ADP Empower
Addressing health equity and disparities has become increasingly important within the healthcare technology industry. Health disparities are rapidly becoming more and more identifiable by social, environmental and economic inequities that can put under-represented populations at a severe disadvantage, and often lead to a higher risk of poor health outcomes.
In 2021, the Allscripts Developer Program (ADP) launched ADP Empower, a corporate diversity, equity and inclusion initiative. This initiative promotes diversity industry-wide and cultivates a community of innovators that represent the perspectives and needs of our clients and their patients.
A goal of ADP Empower is to plant the S.E.E.D. for entrepreneurs by providing resources and opportunities that will contribute to their ongoing successes.
- Support new technology
- Engage with a diverse community
- Educate to fuel innovation
- Deploy integrated solutions to patients and providers
At its core, ADP Empower helps these companies navigate the health IT industry through sharing insights and resources as well as collaborating on efforts to seamlessly deliver innovation to Allscripts clients. This initiative has already effectively responded to individual and communal health challenges by partnering with developers for better development support, marketing and connections to potential users.
Clients and interested developers are encouraged to register to join us for the Diverse Healthcare Technology Accelerates Innovation webinar on March 30, during which you’ll learn about the progress the program has made and how its solutions help bridge gaps of inequity while encouraging meaningful patient-centered care.
