One of the challenges of delivering health care in an equitable way lies in successfully identifying gaps in care and other disparities that have long gone unnoticed. Ayin Health Solutions, led by President Ruth Krystopolski, is closing those gaps by collecting, organizing, and bringing actionable data and other technology solutions to key industry stakeholders. Through this work, providers, payers, and delivery organizations can work together to reduce health disparities and improve the health of vulnerable populations.
