Description

Rural health care leaders are actively transforming their organizations through a focus on affordability and value with innovative responses to emerging opportunities and unprecedented challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic. Strategic partnerships that cut across the care continuum, evolving payment models, unique workforce approaches, effective leveraging of digital technologies, attention to the social determinants of health, and new care models are enabling rural providers to improve the health of their communities. Success is being driven by inspired leadership, forward-thinking governance, and resilient clinicians and staff.
