An innovative community-based model for improving preventive care in rural counties.
This quasi-experimental pilot study aimed to implement and evaluate a sustainable, rural community-based patient outreach model for preventive care provided through primary care practices (PCPs) located in a rural county in Oklahoma. Six of the 7 PCPs in the county expressed interest in the project with the result that three of these practices fully implemented the 1-year outreach program starting in mid-2015.
