Access to Rural Health Care – A Literature Review and New Synthesis
Reviews relevant literature to help clarify the meaning of access in the context of rural healthcare. Focuses on four dimensions of access including people, place, provider, and payment, and notes that changes in one dimension affects the others. Recommends that policymakers address all dimensions of access throughout the policymaking process to ensure best outcomes.
