Health and health care
Access to quality, affordable health care can transform lives and communities. Urban delivers data and analysis on America’s health care system that deepen understanding of the trade-offs of health reforms, reveal inequities in people’s health and access to care, and show how policies and programs affect patients, providers, payers, and communities. Lawmakers and advocates turn to Urban’s research to design evidence-based strategies that advance equity in health care and improve health and well-being for all.
