The Rural Hospital Guide provides rural hospital executive and management teams with generally accepted best practice concepts related to care management.
Explore opportunities to improve performance within the hospital setting through the transition from traditional fee-for-service reimbursement to a value-based, population-health-focused reimbursement environment.
Rural hospitals should use this guide to determine how to most effectively staff care management and identify opportunities to improve clinical and financial outcomes.
State rural health partners may also benefit from this guide, as it assists them to ask the right questions when meeting with hospital leadership.
