With the support of the Health Resources Services Administration’s Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP), the National Rural Health Resource Center provides selected small rural hospitals and rural health clinics technical assistance through the Rural Healthcare Provider Transition Project (RHPTP). This project is designed to help strengthen the participant’s foundation in key elements of value-based care (VBC) including but not limited to efficiency, quality, patient experience, and safety of care.

The Rural Healthcare Provider Transition Project (RHPTP) is designed to help strengthen value-based care (VBC) for health care organizations by building recipients’ foundation for VBC in efficiency, quality, patient experience, and safety of care.
RHPTP’s goal is to guide small rural hospitals (SRH) and rural health clinics (RHC) not currently participating in VBC to prepare for and position their organizations for future participation in alternative payment and care delivery models (APM).
Eligible Small Rural Hospitals is defined as a non-federal, short-term general acute care hospital that: (i) is located in a rural area as defined in 42 U.S.C 1395ww(d) and (ii) has 49 available beds or less, as reported on the hospital’s most recently filed Medicare Cost Report.
SRH and RHC are encouraged to apply under a single application for TA.
