RWJF State Health Reform Assistance Network Initiative

As part of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s (RWJF) State Health Reform Assistance Network initiative, HSC examined commercial and Medicaid health insurance markets in eight U.S. metropolitan areas: Baltimore; Portland, Ore.; Denver; Long Island, N.Y.; Minneapolis/St. Paul; Birmingham, Ala.; Richmond, Va.; and Albuquerque, N.M. The study examined both how these markets function currently and are changing over time, especially in preparation for national health reform as outlined under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. The site visits took place in 2012-13. HSC will publish Community Reports for each community and two cross-site analyses based on findings from the site studies. More information can be found here.

Community Tracking Study (CTS) Site Visits

As part of the CTS, HSC studies how local health systems are changing through site visits to 12 randomly selected U.S. communities. Since 1996, researchers have visited the 12 communities approximately every two-three years to conduct in-depth interviews with leaders of the local health system. In 2010, HSC completed its seventh round of site visits and has published Community Reports from each site. More information can be found here.

California Site Studies

As part of the California Health Care Almanac project, the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF) funded HSC to conduct interviews in six California communities in 2011-12 to assess how the organization, financing and delivery of health care are changing, including preparations for health reform. CHCF will publish regional market reports for each community and two cross-site analyses based on findings from the site studies. A previous round of California site studies was conducted by HSC researchers in 2008. More information can be found here.
