The Deloitte Health Equity Institute
Advancing health equity by translating our purpose into action
The Deloitte Health Equity Institute is committed to helping break down silos to advance equitable health outcomes at scale by driving action through community collaboration, analytics & insights and knowledge & evidence.
Our nation has long faced a health equity crisis with enormous implications – a crisis that leaders across the US, and the globe, should act to address now. Structural racism and bias, deep inequities in the drivers of health (also known as social determinants of health), and structural flaws in the health system have led to a lack of health equity, disproportionately affecting racially and ethnically diverse individual
Recognizing the imperative for immediate and sustained effort to address these issues, and grounded in Deloitte’s acknowledgement of racism as a public health crisis, Deloitte established the Deloitte Health Equity Institute (DHEI) in 2021.
DHEI builds on our work with clients, a decade of impact made by our the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, and our perspective on how life sciences and health care organizations can activate health equity.

Analytics & Insights
DHEI is dedicated to making data and analytical tools publicly available to support the work of community-based organizations and those on the ground advancing the health equity. We are applying proprietary analytics platforms to mobilize action to drive health equity in particular geographies and target interventions.
Recently, the DHEI collaborated with Surgo Ventures to provide an additional layer of data to it’s COVID-19 Community Vulnerability Index (CCVI). This index, displaying which US communities may be less resilient to the impacts of the pandemic, now includes elevated health risk data for COVID-19. With this additional layer of data, powered by Deloitte’s HealthPrism technology, the CCVI predicts which populations are at risk for certain health conditions identified by the CDC as being risk factors for COVID-19 related complications. Access Surgo Venture’s CCVI here.
