Enroll today in April’s Learning and Action Network (LAN)!

Population health management is a foundational component of value-based health care (VBC). As rural health organizations look toward strategies to engage in value-based alternative payment models (APMs), there are a variety of opportunities to utilize technology-based tools to support successful population health management, leading to improved patient outcomes and reduction of the total cost of care. Stratis Health will look at technologies and processes which have been incorporated by organizations as they shift to this new payment and patient care models. 

For busy rural health leaders, time is a key limitation, and awareness and understanding of technology-based tools and opportunities for their use in supporting population health strategies may often fall to the bottom of a to-do list.

Upon completion of this LAN series, participants will be able to:

  • Describe current trends and opportunities for small rural hospitals and rural health clinics to use information technology (IT) tools to support VBC population health strategies
  • Assess potential use of IT tools to support VBC population health goals
  • Identify a plan for the next steps regarding the potential use of technology tools in your organization

This Learning Collaborative is for Rural Healthcare Provider Transition Project (RHPTP) eligible small rural hospitals and certified rural health clinics. Leaders in the following roles that are engaged or expect to be engaged in the transition to VBC will benefit from this LAN including executive teams, health information technology, quality and safety, clinicians, and others interested in population health strategies.

This LAN will be open to the first 20 organizations to register and complete a memorandum of understanding; 16 spots remain
