The Kaiser Family Foundation today launched Kaiser Fast Facts, a new component of its kff.org Web site, featuring QuickTakes and Kaiser Slides - two new tools providing direct access to facts, data and slides about the nation's health care system and programs, in an easy-to-use format.
QuickTakes presents an inventory of facts-at-a-glance providing a concise overview of the health care system, as well as key facts about a wide variety of health policy topics, including: Medicaid, the uninsured, health care costs and insurance, Medicare, public opinion, HIV/AIDS, minority health, women's health policy and the entertainment media and health. These data are compiled from the Foundation's own studies and analyses as well as those from other organizations. Using QuickTakes, Web visitors will find up-to-date health policy statistics that provide an overview of key aspects of the health care system without having to search through various publications. Links to related materials and sources are also provided.
Kaiser Slides allows Web visitors to freely view, download and print hundreds of graphics and tables presenting health policy statistics and trends from studies by Kaiser and others. The slides, which cover a broad range of topics, explain key aspects of health policy issues and can be used by anyone in presentations or as handouts at meetings and events.
