According to the Office of Health Equity (NMDOH) the health challenges specific to New Mexico include:

  • 25% of New Mexicans live at or below the federal poverty level.
  • 1 in 3 of New Mexicans live in rural areas.
  • New Mexico has a health care provider shortage which negatively impacts preventative care and access to treatment.
  • Obesity and diabetes among New Mexico youth are disproportionately higher in Native and Hispanic populations.
  • Diseases of despair are highest among Native Americans, with NM ranking highest for alcohol related deaths in the nation.
  • LGBT youth are more likely to suffer depression and anxiety and to have attempted suicide.
  • Teen pregnancy rates among Hispanic and Latino females are higher than any other racial or ethnic group.
  • Infant mortality and poor maternal health outcomes are highest among Black and African American women.
  • 35% of New Mexicans speak a language other than English.
  • New Mexico’s minority-majority population has suffered root shock, historical trauma and the effects of colonization leading to systemic racism and social injustices.

How can New Mexico’s Health Information Exchange help to improve health care equity? 

Our 2022 agenda will illustrate how participation in health information exchange and the use of the solutions SYNCRONYS provides can work to reduce disparities in health care.

Please hold the dates and plan to join us for a complimentary, two-morning event, in person or online.
