For Researchers

Racial/ethnic minority and female patients in the U.S. often have worse health outcomes when compared with white and male patients, even when controlling for insurance status, education, and other socioeconomic factors. A growing body of research has documented the need to understand the contribution personal and institutional bias has on healthcare inequities. The Patient-Reported Experiences of Discrimination in Care Tool (PreDict) responds to the need for a comprehensive measurement approach for discrimination in healthcare settings. The tool will be used to assess patient-centeredness of the care experience, to compare and report on hospital-level performance, and to ultimately improve the quality of care delivery within healthcare organizations.
