About us

We help you fight for equity in specialty care so you can save more lives

Who we are

Close the Gap is an 18-year health equity intiative at Boston Scientific’s health equity initiatives focused on empowering providers to reduce health inequities that women and people of color often experience in specialty care. We engage providers and caring communities to address healthcare inequities experienced by Black, Hispanic, Latinx, and female patients by providing robust data and customizable resources to inform and activate measurable changes in care.

A long history of partnership

We intimately understand the complex clinical and operational challenges faced by providers and administrators committed to fighting health disparities among people with advanced, chronic disease. Building on Boston Scientific’s many years of health equity experience through Close the Gap, we focus on creating action-oriented initiatives that work within – and extend your health equity efforts – so you can reach and treat more women and people of color with life-threatening conditions.​

Why we fight for health equity

For patients with serious conditions like coronary artery disease (CAD), peripheral artery disease (PAD), and heart failure, accessing care and benefiting from treatments using advanced medical technology doesn’t happen at the same rate as it does for white men. Our Close the Gap team is committed to changing this.1,2,3
