MRMC Chosen for SRHT Project
With the support of the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP), Rural Health Innovations (RHI), a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Rural Health Resource Center, is excited to announce that Magnolia Regional Medical Center of Magnolia, Arkansas has been chosen to be supported through the Small Rural Hospital Transition (SRHT) Project. The SRHT Project is funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) FORHP through a contract to RHI.
The purpose of the SRHT Project is to provide on-site technical assistance (TA) to support small rural hospitals in bridging the gaps between the current volume-based health care system and the newly emerging value-based system of health care delivery and payment. Participating hospitals must reside in persistent poverty areas of the U.S.
The top eight ranked hospitals were selected based on program eligibility requirements, organizational readiness, leadership and commitment to implementing consultant best practice recommendations that improve performance, as well as strategies that assist providers in transitioning to a value-based system. RHI received 27 applications from 15 states. The scoring and ranking process revealed a competitive pool of candidates.
Congratulations to Magnolia Regional Medical Center for this accomplishment! For more information on the SRHT Project, visit the website at https://www.ruralcenter.org/rhi/srht.
