Abstract .Provision of consistent, high quality health care is lacking in the United States. There is significant evidence identifying the need for improvement in health care. The implementation of health information technology has been proposed as a strategy to reduce costs and improve the quality of care. Researchers have found health information technology implementation benefits the healthcare management of patients by improving the quality of care provided. Additionally there is evidence that critical access hospitals are lacking in quality of care and have higher mortality (i.e., death) rates in comparison to urban hospitals. A study identified a gap in the knowledge of quality of care with respect to critical access hospitals.
