Summary
This study attempted to develop models of health care utilization among hospitalized chronically ill rural older adults from three rural health acute care facilities within Missouri. This analysis of HCFA data utilized Anderson's Framework for Health Care Utilization as a theoretical underpinning. The framework provided rationale for selection and reduction of the predictor variables present within HCFA billing data. Age, gender, marital status, presence of supplemental insurance, and number of secondary diagnoses were all considered for their predictive capabilities with the criterion variables dollars and hospitalizations billed to HCFA. A query of Medicare diagnostic related groups chronic pulmonary disease (88) and congestive heart failure (127) resulted in 517 chronically ill rural older adult subjects. Although minimal relationships were detected and predictive models of health care utilization could not be built, valuable insight was gained about information support structures present within rural health care facilities. Recommendations and conclusions are directed at enhancement of rural health care facility information structures. Information feedback loops are critical for rural health care providers to make informed decisions about patient management related to those who deplete the most resources within their facilities. Additional research should be done with national HCFA billing data sets to create feedback loops within individual state agencies for rural facilities, to establish actual predictive equations, and to evaluate rural region influence within the heterogeneous population of rural America
