For too long, the LGBTQ+ community has been underserved and ignored by the healthcare system. Today, it is more important than ever for health systems to prioritize the unique health needs of this growing population. Studies show that LGBTQ+ individuals face significant barriers to healthcare access, discrimination, and higher rates of mental health issues, substance abuse, and chronic conditions. By partnering with OutCare Health, health systems can access comprehensive LGBTQ+ health equity services, such as provider education, care coordination, and consulting services. OutCare’s OutList directory helps connect patients with affirming healthcare providers, improving access to culturally responsive care. Together, we can work towards creating a more equitable healthcare system that supports the health and well-being of all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
