Altarum’s Center for Consumer Choice in Health Care (CCCHC) has created the Altarum Consumer Engagement (ACE) Measure™, a 21-item survey that assesses four domains of health engagement.
The goals of this project are to expand the YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program to reach more African-American/ Black and Hispanic/Latino populations, implement healthy eating and physical activity standards in early childhood and afterschool programs serving these populations, and achieve jurisdiction-wide health impact through implementation of jurisdiction-wide changes.
The fall 2013 Altarum Survey of Consumer Health Care Opinions is the fifth in an ongoing series of semiannual surveys produced by the Altarum Center for Consumer Choice in Health Care.
This report covers several areas. To begin, it describes consumer health characteristics, cost sharing, health care utilization, and general perceptions about satisfaction with care. Next, it describes consumers’ preferred roles in decisions about health care and characteristics associated with wanting an active role.
Health care consumers are adapting to significant changes in how they can seek and select care.
The Spring/Summer 2012 Altarum Survey of Consumer Health Care Opinions report covers several topics.
The State of Texas Medicaid Services: Assessment of Case Management for Children and Pregnant Women (CPW) for Class Members

Altarum is evaluating the effectiveness of the patient-centered medical home case management model utilized by a Frontier Community Health Care Network Coordination grantee (MT DPHHS) and assess the performance of the grantee in their ability to design, create and implement such a model in a frontier area.

The Survey of Ill or Injured Service Members Post Operational Deployment was a large-scale telephone survey conducted from May 2007 to September 2013.
