Policy papers and Reports by LHCF


LHCF Policy Paper 1

Review of HealthCare Initiatives in Travis County, Texas: Recommendations and suggestions regarding the proposed University of Texas Medical School at Austin, improvements to the University Medical Center at Brackenridge (UMCB) and related proposed community healthcare improvements.



LHCF Policy Paper 2

As our policy-makers are crafting an Integrated Delivery System (IDS) which is a critical component of the 1115 Waiver Program and as a plethora of related policy and service delivery improvements toward the goal of bringing a world class medical school and teaching hospital to the Austin area it has become necessary to examine our current delivery systems. In doing so, the Latino HealthCare Forum (LHCF) prepared and published Paper No.1 “Review of Health Care Initiatives in Travis County, Texas” on May 5, 2012. As promised, this is the second Policy Paper we share to stimulate discussion and recommend what we believe is an obvious complement to Senator Watson’s “10 By 10 Plan”.
