This report presents findings from the first 18 months of an evaluation of San Mateo County's Health System Redesign and Adult Coverage Initiative (ACE), an effort to improve access to high quality care for uninsured and underinsured adults and improve the financial sustainability of the San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC) and related delivery systems. The County has begun implementation of team-based care, disease management, Advanced Access scheduling, and electronic medical records. Enrollment in the ACE program continues to exceed expectations, and data collected for the evaluation show increased access to care and receipt of doctor visits.
