In support of healthcare systems, hospitals, academic medical institutions, health professional associations, community health centers, health foundations, public health agencies, care teams, providers, communities, and individuals, Intend Health Strategies recognizes the significant and widespread societal impact of the June 24, 2022, Supreme Court ruling to overturn Roe v. Wade. The 2022 court ruling eliminates the constitutional right to abortion provided by the 1973 court ruling and provides individual states with the power to allow, limit, or ban the practice of abortion.
The overturning of the 1973 ruling interferes with the patient-clinician relationship while compounding patient stress and increasing obstacles in providing patient care. In an already challenging healthcare environment, stakes have become even higher for clinicians and patients with increasing challenges when providing patient care and improving patient outcomes.
Intend Health Strategies supports the sanctity of the clinician-patient relationship, the rights of individuals to make personal healthcare decisions, and access to high quality care for all. We believe this ruling will negatively impact all of these core principles. High-quality, safe, and equitable access to all healthcare services, including all reproductive healthcare services, is critical to the advancement of health.
Now more than ever, Intend Health Strategies is committed to helping organizations utilize Relational Leadership to cultivate leadership, increase engagement and collaboration, strengthen community, transform conflict, and navigate this and other complex challenges as we together work to improve healthcare and advance the health of all.
