In May 2005, a team of researchers visited Greenville, S.C., to study that community's health system, how it is changing and the effects of those changes on consumers. The Center for Studying Health System Change (HSC), as part of the Community Tracking Study, interviewed more than 50 leaders in the health care market. Greenville is one of 12 communities tracked by HSC every two years through site visits. Individual community reports are published for each round of site visits. The first four site visits to Greenville, in 1996, 1998, 2000 and 2003, provide trend information against which changes are tracked. The Greenville market encompasses Anderson, Cherokee, Greenville, Pickens and Spartanburg counties.
