This project examined whether overall improvements in the quality of care for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) among Medicare patients occurred in both rural and hospital settings. It used the Cooperative Cardiovascular Project Database and a database of measures of clinical performance, and included in the sample those Medicare beneficiaries with an AMI who were directly admitted for AMI care. Funded by HRSA’s ORHP.
