Summary
The results from the "Health in Housing: Exploring the Intersection between Housing and Health Care" study undeniably inform and necessitate policy, program development and funding changes that should be implemented in the early stages of health care reform at the national and state levels.
Description

"Health in Housing: Exploring the Intersection between Housing and Health Care" is one of the first and most comprehensive studies that explores the link between affordable housing and health care. The study provides further documentation that housing positively affects health outcomes, and that access to integrated services in affordable housing further reduces health care costs and significantly reduces use of expensive health care services, such as emergency department visits. These results undeniably inform and necessitate policy, program development and funding changes that should be implemented in the early stages of health care reform at the national and state levels.
