Reduce health inequities with Close the Gap

Educate and empower healthcare providers

For more than 15 years, Boston Scientific’s Close the Gap program has helped healthcare systems and providers build outreach programs that address healthcare disparities in the Black, Hispanic, Latinx, and female populations.  

We work with you to provide robust hospital-specific data and customizable resources to inform and activate measurable changes in care through:

  • Elevating health equity awareness by providing patient and HCP resources to support health literacy, preparing for physician visits and communicating barriers to care

  • Empowering providers to act in addressing healthcare inequities by collaborating to develop action plans for addressing barriers and engaging patients that seek care

With Close the Gap, you gain specific data-driven insights for your organization, including:

  • National view of disease prevalence

  • Disease prevalence by specific zip code

  • Automated statistical analysis reports on treatment disparities 

  • Marketing assets branded to the hospital to support health inequity initiatives 

“Close the Gap is not a feel-good initiative. It really is a testament to the mission that underlies everything that we do as a company at Boston Scientific. We are here to improve the healthcare outcomes for all patients around the world.”

Camille Chang Gilmore - VP, Human Resources and Global Chief Diversity Officer (CDO) for Boston Scientific

Real life case studies

HeartLogic™ heart failure diagnostic insights

HeartLogic is the first FDA-approved heart failure diagnostic that uses multiple sensors to track physiological trends and combine them into one composite index.

When the index crosses over a configurable threshold, HeartLogic sends a proactive alert to the clinician via the Heart Failure Management Report from the LATITUDE™ NXT Remote Patient Management System. These actionable insights may help you adjust treatment and potentially avoid an impending heart failure event. This is an extraordinary first, only from Boston Scientific.
