CHIS and the ACA: Using data to better understand health reform in California

[ Posted on October 24th, 2013 by Porsche Johnson | No Comments » ]

The ACA is upon us!  The Affordable Care Act is effective January 1, 2014.  Become more informed about the current health insurance and healthcare access trends in your community by joining us for one of the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research’s free AskCHIS online workshops in November 2013! AskCHIS is the online web tool that uses data from the California Health Interview Survey, the nation’s largest state health survey.

On November 13th, staff from the Center’s Health DATA Program will provide an AskCHIS Online Introduction for participants who have never or rarely used CHIS data. The training will help participants learn how to find, select and analyze health insurance and healthcare access related indicators in the AskCHIS online webtool. Space is limited, register now.

Our Advanced AskCHIS workshop on November 20th will help those participants who have previously taken an introduction to AskCHIS training or are advanced users of AskCHIS how to work with multiple CHIS variables related to health insurance and healthcare access; generate bivariate tables, and export data tables and graphs. Space is limited, register now.
