Title: Rural Policy Brief. The Frontier Extended Stay Clinical Model: A Potential Health Care Delivery Alternative for Small Rural Communities (Brief No. 2013-9, August 2013)
Abstract: This policy brief analyzes whether the Frontier Extended Stay Clinic demonstration project successes in five remote and/or isolated clinics could be a reasonable emergency care and extended clinical stay model for other sites. It examines five states based on low population densities and geographic spread, presents findings based on distance from the nearest hospital and average daily hospital censuses, and discusses how health care financing influences health care delivery design. The brief includes tables and a reference.
