A randomized clinical trial of clinical decision support in a rural community health network serving lower income individuals: study design and baseline characteristics.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Lower income individuals in the US frequently experience difficulties in obtaining access to needed health care services. We describe a randomized clinical trial that seeks to improve the quality of, and access to healthcare services for medically underserved populations in five rural counties of North Carolina. We propose to achieve these improvements by implementing system-to-system integration via a telehealth network with an asynchronous clinical decision support system for health care providers.
