For more than 45 years, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has worked with others to address the major health and health care issues of our time. We believe deeply in the importance of research, evaluation, and learning to build a transdisciplinary evidence base that helps inform efforts to address complex and interrelated determinants of health.
RWJF’s Health Data for Action (HD4A) program, launched in 2017 and managed by AcademyHealth, is designed to leverage health data for actionable insights. The program is aligned with the Foundation’s efforts to engage the health care sector in promoting population health and broader policy considerations. With greater access to health data, including data from delivery systems, as well as health information technology, researchers can better answer important questions to build a Culture of Health and inform health policy.
