State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC)—helps states to monitor rates of health insurance coverage, understand factors associated with access to care, and utilize data to implement health reform.

SHADAC provides technical assistance to federal agencies that conduct health insurance surveys, and states that conduct their own surveys and/or use data from national surveys.

The goal is to help bridge the gap between health insurance data and the policy-making process. SHADAC produces timely and targeted health policy research with a focus on deriving lessons from state variations in policy and outcomes in the national context.
