Developing an annual health care survey to take the pulse of Hispanic communities and craft programs to meet evolving access and quality needs

To address the expectations for active consumer involvement in the health care system, the National Alliance for Hispanic Health will develop an annual national Buena Salud (Good Health) survey of a representative sample of Hispanics on health care status, access and utilization; quality of care; and opinions on key health care issues of the day. The project's key deliverables will be an annual Buena Salud survey report in 2013 and 2014 on Hispanics' health experiences, a total of three quarterly survey supplements providing timely data on emerging health issues, and Web and social-media platforms for surveying Hispanic consumers on current health issues. The project's key outcome will be establishment of a trusted and timely data source on Hispanics' health perceptions, experiences, and needs in order to foster improved service delivery and engagement of Hispanic consumers as self-advocates in their health care. A deliverable will be a public-use dataset for inclusion in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Health and Medical Care Archive.
