Diabetic Management in Rural Healthcare
No Thumbnail Available
Populations living in rural areas have limited access to specialty healthcare providers limiting them from proper follow-up guidelines. Specifically, patients diagnosed with diabetes struggle with finding the time to travel to appointments and finances to cover travel expenses and absence from work. This project is a literature review of a variety of levels of studies to analyze the benefits of healthcare options in rural health, including telehealth, telemedicine, mobile health clinics, and mobile health applications. The exploration of tele and mobile health options proved to have positive outcomes on patient diabetic-related laboratory levels and overall satisfaction with a healthcare plan.
