Chartbook Provides Comprehensive Look at Women’s Health Care in the U.S.

The Kaiser Family Foundation has released a new Women’s Health Care Chartbook, which includes the findings from a national survey of women ages 18 to 64 and provides a look at the experiences of women in the health care system. The chartbook presents a wide range of data on women’s health issues, including insurance coverage, affordability of and access to care, use of health care services, prevention and family health. The survey was conducted in 2008 and builds on data collected during previous women’s health surveys conducted by the Foundation in 2001 and 2004.

Kaiser Media Fellowships Site Visits to San Francisco and Sacramento

Through the Kaiser Media Fellowships, journalists with a strong focus on health policy and state health reform were invited to participate in a week-long program focusing on the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in California. Based initially in San Francisco and later in Sacramento, the program offered journalists the opportunity to meet with a variety of stakeholders concerned with the implementation of health reform, including state health officials, health policy experts, physicians, community clinic staff members and legislative staff. The program focused on a range of issues including the establishment of the California health benefit exchange, initiatives to improve the delivery of health care and reduce medical costs, and projects addressing physician shortages in the Medicaid program.

Poll Watch Examines Satisfaction With Health Care Costs and Quality Among Uninsured

The Foundation’s Poll Watch feature finds that people without health insurance not only are much less likely to say they are satisfied with health care costs than those with insurance, but also are less satisfied with their quality of care. Six in ten of the uninsured say they are satisfied with their quality of care, compared to almost nine in ten of those with insurance. For both cost and quality, the uninsured are about half as likely as the insured to report they are "very satisfied."

In addition to Kaiser Family Foundation events listed below, a number of external organizations conduct activities at the Foundation's Barbara Jordan Conference Center in Washington, D.C. This week, the Funders Network hosted an event.
