Service Recovery in Health Care

In partnership with the National Rural Health Resource Center (The Center), as a part of the Rural Healthcare Provider Transition Project (RHPTP), Stratis Health created a brief recorded training series designed to equip health care professionals with the knowledge and tools to support service recovery training within their facilities. Stratis Health and The Center encourage viewing the sessions in sequence, but individual sessions may be used for stand-alone training and review.

Service Recovery in Health Care Series

Session I: Why it Matters

Session II: Eight Steps to Service Recovery

Session III: Tips for De-escalation

Session IV: Embedding Service Recovery into Everyday Practice

A two-page PDF handout was also created for a quick reference in outlining the Eight Steps to Service Recovery and the Tips for De-escalation.

Eight Steps to Service Recovery

NEW! Financial Guide for Rural Health Care Leaders During COVID and Post-COVID

The Technical Assistance and Services Center (TASC), a program of the National Rural Health Resource Center (The Center), is pleased to announce the launch of the Financial Guide for the Rural Health Care Leaders During COVID and Post-COVID.

This guide was created for state Flex Program personnel, critical access hospitals (CAHs) leaders, provider-based rural health clinics (RHCs), and others that assist these providers in managing long-term financial performance. The content is designed to be as non-technical as possible and to provide guidance regarding the potential and anticipated impact the COVID Public Health Emergency (PHE) will have on top financial indicators during and after the PHE. Strategies on how to address the financial indicators have been included, as well as, action plans to guide CAH and provider-based RHC leaders as organizations navigate the challenges of the PHE and post-PHE periods.

On October 07, 2021, the TASC team held an informative webinar to launch the newly created guide. View the webinar playback here.
