Our Focus Areas
Coverage and Access

Health insurance connects New Yorkers with essential health care while protecting against potentially bankrupting health care costs. UHF’s work helps efforts to ensure universal, affordable, comprehensive insurance coverage and access to care—and to strengthen New York’s Medicaid program.

Quality and Efficiency

Despite recent and ongoing improvements, health care quality and patient safety in New York still vary tremendously. And too often, health services fall short of fully meeting patients’ needs. UHF is working to help fill the gap by making New York’s health care more patient-focused, outcome-driven, safe, effective, and efficient.

Clinical-Community Partnerships

There’s far more to health than health care alone. To address issues and risk factors that can affect patients’ well-being outside the medical or clinical setting, UHF is forging alliances between the health care system, social services, and the community.

Condemning Racism and Injustice

How do we move forward? We stand with others to condemn racism and injustice, but this is not enough. We must use the tools and skills available to each of us to right the wrongs.
