Access to Comprehensive Preventive and Primary Care

Houston Endowment joined other local funders to sponsor an update to an earlier report on the supply and demand for preventive and primary care services for uninsured and low-income residents in Houston and Harris County. The report describes the growth and changes among primary care providers and those they serve, as well as emerging trends aimed at improving accessibility and the health of Harris County residents.

The report notes that investments in the primary care sector have effectively increased access, improved quality and built a stronger network of care in Harris County over the past 10 years. The report also describes certain geographic areas of need and outlines the continued need to ensure access to certain specialty care services.
