These findings from the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) provide information to help counties and local health systems identify areas with high rates of chronic conditions and assist them in meeting the needs of chronically ill patients.

The reports include exhibits and maps outlining California statistics related to heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and asthma. The 2005 and 2007 editions introduce measures of adult psychological distress, active asthma, and congestive heart failure. They also provide prevalence rates and examine selected characteristics, such as Medi-Cal enrollment, ethnicity, and income status of those with chronic conditions.

Access to health care is particularly crucial for Californians with chronic illness. The report presents composites of access indicators that describe problems and barriers patients face when seeking care. Considering that regular monitoring can prevent costly complications, maintaining a well organized and accessible health service system can reduce medical care costs and improve health outcomes associated with chronic conditions.

These reports were supported by The California HealthCare Foundation.
