Rural Provider Participation in a Statewide Health Information Project
We will develop an all-inclusive model for assessing costs and benefits of a statewide system. We will also interview decision makers in two physician clinics and two hospitals who have implemented electronic medical records.
We will publish a policy brief, submit a manuscript to a scholarly journal and submit abstracts to appropriate professional meetings and special conferences.

RUPRI Center for Rural Health Policy Analysis
