San Diego County Healthcare Safety Net Study

San Diego County Healthcare Safety Net Study

Overview: The Abaris Group was selected by the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency to conduct a long-range needs assessment of the healthcare safety net serving San Diego county residents.

Study Methodology: The study sought input from the following key stakeholder group services: patients, clinics, health centers, hospital inpatient, hospital outpatient, emergency, trauma, primary and specialty care and physician needs. It also included an assessment of funding needs for those services in the San Diego region for the next 20 years. The study's focus for this assessment was on estimating the demand and funding needs for those persons who are uninsured and under insured and on identifying strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges to meet those needs.

The study was conducted employing in-depth data analysis and obtaining input from stakeholders via Town Hall meetings, one-on-one interviews, and focus groups.

Final Report: The San Diego County Healthcare Safety Net Study Core Report is available for downloading. It includes an executive summary all findings and recommendations.
