Rural Models for American Health Care: Is Our Problem the Solution?

Award Year: 2001 Investigator: George Wright, Ira Moscovice
Rural health care is often viewed solely as a perennial problem and the object of special needs. This study takes a different perspective many rural communities have also developed cost-effective, primary care-oriented, high-quality models that deserve careful attention. They represent America's homegrown alternative to the consolidation of health services and institutions, and to what patients often perceive as increasingly impersonal care.
