Fight for health equity

18+ years

4 disease states

Our focus is currently on addressing disparities in life-threatening conditions: atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease, heart failure, and peripheral artery disease.

A collaboration to close the gap in healthcare disparities

In order to address inequities in healthcare, we believe that we must work together to improve specialty care access for women and people of color with life-threatening conditions.

At Close the Gap, we partner with health systems and providers to address specialty care disparities by providing robust, disease-specific data, and resources you can customize to create measurable improvement in care.
