Real-World Accelerator to Improve the Standard of collection and curation of race and Ethnicity data in healthcare (RAISE) 

RACE gfxThere is currently incomplete and inconsistent capture of information about race and ethnicity in real-world data (RWD). This limits a full understanding of the distribution, safety, and effectiveness of FDA-regulated products, which impacts the health of the public. To address this, the Reagan-Udall Foundation for the FDA has launched RAISE to improve the capture and curation of race and ethnicity data in healthcare settings as a means of ultimately improving quality of healthcare and medical products.

 

The Reagan-Udall Foundation for the FDA has launched RAISE to elevate the capture and curation of race and ethnicity data in healthcare settings to improve the quality of healthcare and medical products.

 

Through RAISE, the Reagan-Udall Foundation for the FDA will:

  • Convene a series of community meetings with leaders across the healthcare ecosystem to create opportunities to share, learn, and build capacity to advance solutions; and
  • Develop a multi-dimensional tool that will help prioritize strategies to improve the capture and curation of race and ethnicity data, based on the barriers and solutions discussed in these community meetings.

The project will include 10-12 community meetings from January – June 2023.

RAISE will cover topics that influence the continuum of race/ethnicity data in healthcare settings.
