Promoting racial equity in digital health: applying a cross-disciplinary equity framework
Even as innovation occurs within digital medicine, challenges around equity and racial health disparities remain. Golden et al. evaluate structural racism in their recent paper focused on reproductive health. They recommend a framework to Remove, Repair, Restructure, and Remediate. We propose applying the framework to three areas within digital medicine: artificial intelligence (AI) applications, wearable devices, and telehealth. With this approach, we can continue to work towards an equitable future for digital medicine.
