The objective of this study was to identify disparities in colonoscopy utilization and access to care across urban-rural populations in the Carolinas. NC and SC are in the top 10% of states for the proportion of residents living in rural areas, making these states an ideal location to examine the effects of access to care. This report illustrates key findings from a study using ambulatory surgery discharge data from NC and SC from 2001-2010. Described is the geographic distribution of colonoscopy providers in the Carolinas, estimated colonoscopy utilization in urban and rural populations, and how patients seek their care based on the availability of providers in their county.
