Health Research & Educational Trust: A Framework for Stratifying Race, Ethnicity and Language Data

This guide from the Health Research & Educational Trust outlines a framework for hospitals and health systems to stratify patient race, ethnicity, and language data to identify and eliminate health care disparities. The framework includes the following five steps:

  • Assemble a working group that is focused on health care disparities data
  • Validate the race, ethnicity, and language data
  • Identify the highest priority metrics for stratification
  • Determine if stratification is possible on the selected metrics
  • Stratify the data
