UCLA Health LGBTQ+ Equitable Care Committee

The LGBTQ+ Equitable Care Committee is supported by UCLA Health and the David Geffen School of Medicine.  Its objective is to support and enhance delivery of care that is safe and affirming.  This includes improving our electronic health records (EHR) system so that we are respecting our patients’ wishes for preferred name, pronoun, sexual orientation and gender identity which allows for a safer health care experience.   It also includes training and educating the work force to the needs of our patients and their families, as well as providing our patients with the resources to select the provider who best matches their needs.  Our vision is to create an equitable, affirming and supportive environment for our LGBTQ+ patients, their families and our staff by providing resources and compassionate health care delivered with dignity, kindness and respect.

UCLA Health is proud of our designation as a Leader in LGBTQ+ Healthcare Equality, and we are pleased to announce that our organization will become one of the first in the nation to adopt systemwide electronic health record changes to support our LGBTQ+ patients. Updates to our electronic health records will enable our patients and staff to have the ability to capture preferred names and pronouns that will be reflected throughout patient records.
