Californians have new rights, opportunities, and responsibilities under the Affordable Care Act. HRA worked with the California Office of the Patient Advocate to survey community needs for information on health care reform and to develop limited literacy, multilingual materials and videos for consumers.
For the general public, biomonitoring is a new concept. Health Research for Action is working with Biomonitoring California to develop and evaluate information that explains this technically complex topic and its relevance to our everyday lives.
HRA developed and tested clear language materials on prescription drugs for Consumer Reports Health Best Buy Drugs™, a free public service website. A variety of fact sheets and brochures, in English and Spanish, are now available to the public.
Physical activity and community involvement are key factors in healthy aging. Working with The Health Trust, we developed "Healthy Steps in Silicon Valley"—an easy-to-read and easy-to-use guide to help people 50 and older become more active in their daily lives.
HRA worked with the California Department of Insurance to rewrite, update, and redesign five informational booklets for consumers, using health literacy best practices to improve readability and usability. The booklets cover topics of health insurance, auto insurance, earthquake insurance, safer driving for seniors, and annuities for seniors.
