Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The Rural Patient Experience survey seeks to identify barriers to healthcare faced by patients in rural Oklahoma. Through the administration of a survey directly to patients, this study will analyze the current status of healthcare access, availability, and usage among rural Oklahoma populations. Results can be used to implement effective improvements in healthcare access tailored to specific patient-indentified barriers.
METHODS: Surveys will be distributed to individuals residing in rural communities and Health Professional Shortage Areas in the state of Oklahoma. The study involves patients of healthcare facilities in partnerships with Oklahoma State University's Center for Health System Innovation, and the facilities that agree to participate in the study will allow access to their patient panel. Patients residing in rural zip codes will be pooled into a randomly sampled population for survey distribution. Two-thirds (67%) of qualifying patients from each patient panel will be randomly selected to receive a survey in order to achieve a sample of adequate size.
Responses will be analyzed using summary statistics, descriptive statistics, and significance testing.
RESULTS & CONCLUSIONS: The development of the survey is being conducted and results are pending the distribution of the survey
