CMS Launches Rural Health Strategy for Patient Access to Care
May 08, 2018 - CMS has announced a first-of-its-kind new strategy to support patient access to care in rural regions.
Currently, one in five patients live in a rural area, which are typically characterized by limited access to quality healthcare. Because of the low population density, clinician shortages, and geographic barriers, patients often struggle to visit the right doctor for the health conditions that are currently ailing them.
