achieving healthcare for all

grade:

Ensuring that Nevada’s population has proper access to care is a major part of ensuring a healthy and sustainable community. Reducing barriers and helping people connect with physicians is of the utmost importance. Nevada currently ranks in the bottom quartile for its insured population both adults and children. This needs to be a primary focus, as people without insurance are less likely to pursue medical attention which can lead to long term harm and poor health.

2020 Target Methodology

The 2020 targets are based on the methodology used by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Healthy People 2020 initiative. In most cases the targets are calculated as a 10 percent improvement over the U.S. average from a base year, typically 2007-2008. In cases where national data from certain sources was not available or reliable, Nevada data was used as the baseline.
