Chartbook on Rural Health Care: Quality of Care Improved in Rural Areas

According to AHRQ’s new Chartbook on Rural Health Care, quality of care has improved for those living in rural areas. The chartbook is part of the 2016 AHRQ National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report, which tracks trends in effectiveness and timeliness of care, patient safety, patient-centeredness, disparities and efficiency of care. The chartbook shows that the quality of care for those living in rural areas improved for 53 percent of the measures studied. It also found that in 2014, the percentage of people who used a hospital, emergency room or clinic as a source of ongoing health care was higher for residents of rural areas compared with residents of large metropolitan areas. Between 1999 and 2015, suicide rates increased from 17 to 25 per 100,000 among whites living in rural areas and 21 to 34 per 100,000 American Indians and Alaska Natives living in rural areas.
