Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This study is the first to compare RSAs to other existing geographic tools to understand healthcare utilization for stroke. The study’s findings suggest RSAs are the relatively optimal tool in suburban and rural but not urban regions. Our findings provide OTs with information to better understand regional variations in health outcomes and rehabilitation-services provision for patients living with stroke.
