New Ideas in Women’s Health Care

New Tools for Professional Practices

A unifying organization of providers, payers, policy makers and community members dedicated to moving women’s health care in Rhode Island towards an improved system of comprehensive, integrated care.

While the provision of health care in RI has wide state support, there are a number of areas regarding the unique requirements of women’s health that have been overlooked, leading to unsatisfactory or failing numbers on various Women’s Health Report Cards for RI.  WHC Report Card and http://hrc.nwlc.org/states/rhode-island

The Council’s expanded definition of standards for women’s health care:

Comprehensive and coordinated research, education, clinical care and policy/advocacy that improve the social, physical and mental health of women across their lifespan.
