Original Text

How do we fix it? Is there a definitive answer to eradicating disparities in maternal mortality? Well, improvements in data accuracy are critical but not nearly enough. Algorithms, checklists, apps — they all play an important role, but they're no panacea either. And I really can't emphasize enough that implicit bias training without explicit, explicit measures of accountability will make absolutely no difference at all. It is time — it is long past time that leaders in the medical community take steps to transform the health care system status quo.
