Expanding on New Concepts: Z-Codes and Health Disparities

2:00 pm CST
National Rural Health Resource Center

This SHIP Webinar focused on Expanding on New Concepts through the SHIP grant. We heard  from Madeline Wilson, Quality and Patient Safety Advisor, from the Indiana Hospital Association on Z-Codes and Health Disparities. The collection and application of Z-codes is an important step in identifying community social determinants of health (SDOH) that can be used to encourage community healthiness. 


By participating in this webinar, attendees were able to:  

  • Define the relationship between Z-codes and Health Disparities
  • Demonstrate the importance of Z-code collection at rural hospitals
  • Identify appropriate spending opportunities for Z-code implementation through SHIP

This event was supported by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) and coordinated by SHIP TA, a program of the National Rural Health Resource Center (The Center).
