Abstract

In this policy brief, we estimate and document the regional magnitudes of charges associated with hospitalizations due to ambulatory care sensitive conditions (ACSCs) in rural hospitals. This research will inform policy makers about the regional magnitudes of rural preventable hospitalizations and the associated potential savings in hospital resource utilization when rural patients receive timely and effective primary care.
