New Spanish Language App Helps Latinos With Health Care

A report from HHS shows that insurance coverage and access to care improved significantly for Latinos between 2013 and 2016, but they still have among the highest uninsured rate of any racial or ethnic group within the U.S.  To build on progress, HHS launched a Spanish version of its QuestionBuilder app, which can help Latino patients prepare for their in-person or telehealth appointments.  The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality built the app to help users improve their interaction with clinicians, providing questions they might want to ask with links to helpful resources.  The 2020 Census reports that Hispanics are the second most prevalent racial or ethnic group in rural America, comprising 10.4 percent of the rural population.
