Assessing Health and Health Care in the District of Columbia
This document describes interim findings from a study of health and the health care service delivery system in the District of Columbia. The goals of the study are to: (1) conduct a comprehensive health needs assessment for Washington DC; (2) assess the quality and accessibility of the District's health care delivery system for individuals with urgent or emergent medical needs; and (3) use information from those assessments to identify and assess various policy options for improving the health care delivery system. This document summarizes findings related to the first two goals. A final report will include findings relevant to goal (3).
