Health Equity

Better health
for all

Since Sharecare’s earliest days, we have fought the fragmentation in healthcare that contributes to inequity. We have seen progress, but we also recognize there is much more to do. We will not rest until the health ecosystem works together better, for all.

Becoming all together better

“…Sharecare is just getting started. We will continue to speak up for those whose voices may not be heard. We will advocate for equity in healthcare, social justice, and the promotion of diversity and inclusion. We know recognizing that our differences, such as gender, ethnicity, age, nationality, sexual orientation, physical ability, experiences, and thinking style, have the power to make Sharecare and the world more, creative, innovative, compassionate, and simply better.”

Sharecare’s General Counsel & Diversity Officer

Sharing care equitably and inclusively

Our original content is one of several ways we empower each person, no matter their background or where they are in their health journey, to optimize their overall well-being. Our insights into social determinants of health give us a deep understanding of not only healthcare’s most underserved populations, but also the aspects of their care upon which clinically sound information, news, and content can help close gaps, promote equity, and impact lives for the better.

All together better

At Sharecare, our actions are driven by our philosophy that we are all together better. It’s a principle that recognizes and celebrates every person’s individuality in the pursuit of optimal well-being for all.

We are committed to supporting each individual through the lens of their personal health and making high-quality care more accessible and affordable for everyone; yet, inherent in that undertaking and our philosophy is the acknowledgement of the profound effects – including and especially injustice in health – that past and present factors driving inequality has on so many.

“All together better” means that we at Sharecare embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion as a core value, which in turn shapes how we serve our communities and customers, how we work, how we recruit, and most importantly, how we treat one another.

Sharecare is committed to the authentic cultivation and promotion of diversity, equity, and inclusion through the products and services that we create and offer; through our work, recruiting and retention practices; through our vendor selection and resource allocation; and most importantly, through our everyday actions and the culture that we foster.

At Sharecare, we know that diversity, equity, and inclusion truly make us all together better.

Equity in our practices

We cultivate health equity, diversity and inclusion in our day-to-day operations and environment. Differences have the power to make our company and our world more compassionate, creative, innovative, efficient.

Thus, we’re devoted to promoting this in practices that extend beyond our service offerings, such as our talent and recruitment strategies, vendor selection and procurement, and our philanthropic initiatives.

The company we keep

Our partnerships are among the most impactful ways we’re making healthcare and our world all together better. We’re proud to collaborate with these organizations that are making a difference by promoting equity and inclusivity in healthcare.

Health equity can only be achieved by bringing together different sectors, organizations, and partners to improve the conditions in which we live, work, and play.

For some of us, racism is the first pandemic we’ve experienced, and it has persisted for centuries. When compounded decade after decade and generation after generation in the form of housing discrimination, employment, and healthcare and other factors, the realities of poor health and total well-being are not surprising. We have an opportunity before us to change the trajectory and create a reality where total well-being can be realized for not some, but all.

At Sharecare, our goal is to ensure that in the face of continued inequity and dissimilarity, community-driven care means both surfacing these data and identifying interventions that augment health outcomes for [underserved] populations, locally and nationally.

Inequities in health in Rural America have been well established, including everything from lower levels of education to higher rates of obesity and diabetes. To make matters worse… these individuals also struggle to receive access to care.
