Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The increasing prevalence of managed care outside of urban centers is forcing many healthcare providers in rural areas to carefully evaluate the demand for their services and their ability to exert leverage in pricing services. Rural providers often face different challenges and employ different strategies than their urban counterparts, but quality, cost, and access remain critical components common to both urban and rural providers.
