Webinar: Findings from CHCF’s Inland Empire Regional Market Study
About This Event
California’s large size means that health care is organized, delivered, and financed differently throughout the state. For the fourth time since 2009, CHCF has commissioned studies of seven large and diverse regional markets that provide details of local health care systems and identify common themes and emerging issues that influence how Californians receive their health care.
In a virtual briefing in December, CHCF will share results from its report on the Inland Empire region — the counties of San Bernardino and Riverside. Prior regional reports were released in 2009, 2012, and 2016. The seven markets included in the 2020 project — Humboldt/Del Norte, Los Angeles, Riverside/San Bernardino, Central Valley, Sacramento, San Diego, and the San Francisco Bay Area — reflect a range of economic, demographic, care delivery, and financing conditions in California.
What are the key factors affecting the health care market in the Inland Empire? What are the unique challenges for this region, how have community leaders addressed them to date, and what are their future plans?
In the briefing, hear from the report’s author and three community leaders with a deep understanding of Inland Empire’s health care market. They will address issues such as the region’s increasing number of Federally Qualified Health Centers, its rapidly evolving hospital market, and new efforts to recruit both primary care clinicians and specialists.
