dc.description.abstractThe social determinants of health make the most impact on our health. There is significant inequality in health due to unfair distribution of the social determinants. Yet, the healthcare system lacks a focus on addressing the social determinants. For this reason, social justice is a necessary part of pursuing equitable healthcare. This goal is complicated by the growing role that technology plays in healthcare and society. Due to the importance of digital information technology, social justice in healthcare must be reoriented to include a focus on its technical aspects. In this paper, I make a case for sociotechnical justice in healthcare, with core concepts and basic principles influenced by Rawlsian Justice. I then present an argument using sociotechnical justice to address a current issue in healthcare before concluding.
