Rochester RHIO Declares that Racism is a Public Health Crisis
We count on health data to measure access, clinical outcomes, costs, and other crucial components of care. Race and ethnicity are part of this data set, influencing planning, aiding decisions, and changing lives. And, we know that many count on Rochester RHIO as one of the community’s key resources for this information.

Data quality and completeness allows accurate assessments of the health and well-being of residents—and identifying inequities. Rochester RHIO is a trusted data steward spanning 14 counties and 1.5 million people. Yet as robust as our systems are, we can do better. Our team is committed to improving how race and ethnicity data are recorded, collaborating with other regional healthcare agencies and experts to evaluate and reform policies and processes that deliver the most precise information possible.
