Share this:

The Washington Health Alliance this week released its first-ever report looking at the total cost of care across Washington state through an equity lens in an effort to drive the conversation toward removing barriers to high-quality, affordable and equitable health care.  

Relying on its All-Payer Claim database, covering 4.5 million Washington residents, the Alliance paired its extensive health care cost data with the Neighborhood Atlas, also known as Area Deprivation Index or ADI, a tool validated by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
