News Briefs: Independence Blue Cross-Led Coalition Will Probe Clinical Decision Support Tools

Independence Blue Cross has convened a group of hospitals and providers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey that will evaluate 15 clinical decision support tools “that adjust results based on a person’s race, potentially causing delays and inequities in care,” according to an Aug. 10 press release. The companies plan on eliminating the use of race as a variable in some of those tools and discussing alternatives that “do not reinforce a biological understanding of race.” The group is called the Regional Coalition to Eliminate Race-Based Medicine and includes Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Doylestown Health, Grand View Health, Jefferson Health, Main Line Health, Nemours Children’s Health, Penn Medicine, Redeemer Health, St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, Temple Health, Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic and Virtua Health.
