The Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis at the National Opinion Research Center was established in 1996 to study policy issues affecting healthcare in rural America. Center products have addressed implications of Medicare payment policies, access to care, home healthcare, public health infrastructure, emergency preparedness, workforce issues, and health information technology. Center researchers conduct quantitative research and analysis using data collected by the Center as well as data from other public sources, including Medicare claims, Cost Reports, and other Medicare administrative data.
