At the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, we believe that health and health care systems should center on the goals and needs of the people and communities they serve. We are working to ensure that these systems are more closely aligned to meet those needs, by supporting programs which are helping to:
- Track trends in health insurance markets to help policymakers make informed decisions about health care coverage;
- Ensure consumers are able to make informed decisions about their care, and foster conversations about the cost of care between clinicians and patients;
- Increase the ability of state Medicaid programs and health systems to improve health equity; and
- Enable and promote connections across health care, social service and public health systems to meet the needs of individuals and communities.
By working across sectors, we have the opportunity to create the kind of health system everyone in our nation deserves: one that couples care with compassion, rewards value over volume, and places health at the center of every aspect of life.
