Medicare Beneficiary Outcomes in Rural and Urban Home Health Agencies

This study was conducted to determine whether rural and urban home care agencies differ in terms of patient care outcomes, and to ascertain whether there are agency characteristics that are associated with better or worse outcomes.

Data for this project was obtained from the Medicare Providers of Services file and the Medicare Home Health Compare (HHC) database.

This project was conducted as part of the Rural Health Research and Policy Center.
