The Brief – Advancing Rural Health Priorities – 2022 Key Rural Measures



19 percent of the U.S population, live in rural (nonmetropolitan) counties, compared to urban areas. These rural residents experience significant health disparities that are rooted in issues specific to rural areas, including economic, geographic, social, ethnic, racial, and healthcare system-based factors. All of these issues can contribute to limited access to timely medical care. Quality measurement and improvement efforts may be affected where providers have too few patients to calculate reliable and valid results for certain quality measures.

ACUTE CARE, INC. has been bridging the gap for over 35 years in healthcare facilities by managing providers to the patient’s and family’s success. If you would like to know more about our Physician Practice Management Solutions and how we help increase quality in your hospital.
