Nebraska Primary Care Practice-Based Research Network

Research & Engagement, 2014


Results

Connected health care providers to improve strategies for management of complex chronic diseases and implemented tools that improved transitions of care from hospitals into the outpatient setting. Using a community-based participatory research approach, these providers, with the help of University of Nebraska Medical Center faculty, were brought together to finalize a project they felt would help them in the management of their patients. This project provided data and models that improved the health care of rural patients and prepared health profession students on rural rotations to become better health providers.
