EHF's research uncovers invaluable insights about health policy and systems, and puts forward real, actionable pathways to deliver advances in health for all Texans. Our research activities and initiatives provide important tools to address health disparities and improve health outcomes across the state.

We’ve produced and funded hundreds of reports focused on health from all angles: non-medical drivers of health, Medicaid expansion, health insurance coverage, rural health, COVID-19 in Texas, the impact of the Affordable Care Act, life expectancy in Texas neighborhoods, early childhood brain development, and much more.

EHF’s annual Texas Health Tracking Polls highlight Texans’ views on health care access and affordability, health policy priorities for the Texas Legislature, and the importance of non-medical factors that impact health.
