“Rural Relevance” report released

HC-ReformiVantage released “Rural Relevance Under Healthcare Reform” at NRHA’s Annual Conference in Las Vegas. Key findings indicate that rural hospitals charge 63 percent less than urban, an estimated $6.8 billion in potential beneficiary savings across all hospitals, and while quality, patient safety, outcomes and satisfaction are equal, price and efficiency in rural emergency departments are better.
