At United States of Care, we believe that in order to have a health care system where everyone can access quality affordable health care, we must start by listening to people and include them at every step of change. To date, we have initiated more than 4,000 in-depth engagements with people in all 50 states to learn about their experiences with health care, good and bad. We continue to center people, especially those underserved by the system, while engaging our cross-sector networks of leaders to work on solutions that make health care work better for everyone.
The resources below provide a snapshot of what we are learning and where we plan to go deeper.
