Racial and ethnic minorities needing medical care will enter sites of care and experience harm from biased medical technologies and interventions. Biases persist across the health innovation ecosystem with drugs, diagnostics, devices, algorithms, and care practices. FAS believes the federal government can play a critical role in correcting bias in technologies and incentivizing future processes for equitable innovation. FAS works to ensure the research and development process is open and fair, looks for ways to support market success for “equitable innovations”, and lifts up new health policy ideas from communities impacted by health inequities.
