Many racial and ethnic minorities, people with limited English-language proficiency, people with disabilities, and other commonly underserved populations face unique health challenges, have reduced access to health care and insurance, and often experience poorer health throughout their lives.1,2 In the past, identifying disparities and effectively monitoring efforts to reduce them have been limited by a lack of specificity, uniformity, and quality in data collection and reporting procedures.
