Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In this policy brief, we estimate and document the national magnitude of charges associated with hospitalizations due to ambulatory care sensitive conditions (ACSCs) in rural hospitals. The brief also reports this type of charge by hospital size. This research will inform policy makers about the magnitude of rural preventable hospitalizations and the associated potential savings in hospital resource utilization.
