dc.descriptionGrundy County is defined as a Medically Underserved Area (MUA), meaning that the county lacks the health care services required to adequately meet community needs. Research shows that across the U.S. in rural MUAs, citizens are increasingly seeking primary care at ERs. Our partner believes that analyzing ER discharge data may offer helpful insight into how Grundy County is medically underserved. Our team’s objective is to create an interactive dashboard that expresses trends in ER discharge data from Grundy County and the surrounding area to aid the SCHN in creating solutions to Grundy’s health service shortage.en_US
dc.description.abstractThe South Cumberland Plateau (SCP) is made up of three counties, Grundy, Franklin, and Marion, all of which are defined as "medically underserved" by the Health Resources and Services Administration. This means that these communities lack the primary health care services and providers necessary to sufficiently meet residents' needs. Our partner, the South Cumberland Health Network (SCHN), wants to understand how these communities are being medically underserved. Our work this summer is dedicated to investigating trends in emergency room use from the South Cumberland Plateau in order to better understand how the community is medically underserved. The insight gained from our findings will inform the South Cumberland Health Network's advocacy moving forward aimed at closing the health care service gaps within these communities.en_US
