Quality of Care for Acute Myocardial Infarction: Are the Gaps Between Rural and Urban Hospitals Closing? (Final Report)
In the mid-1990s, quality of care for AMI lagged significantly in rural hospitals, with patients in the smallest and most remote rural hospitals at greatest risk. Overall quality of AMI care has improved in the United States since that time. Whether these improvements have been consistent across rural and urban hospitals is unknown.
