Rural Initiative Addressing Community Social Needs

The Flex Monitoring Team (FMT) has released a new case series, Rural Initiatives Addressing Community Social Needs. The case series describes two Critical Access Hospital (CAH)-based initiatives to address social needs in their communities:

  • Food Access Initiatives, Lakewood Health System, Staples, Minnesota, and;
  • NEK Prosper, Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital, St. Johnsbury, Vermont

This case series provides best practices for CAHs and communities that may wish to emulate these programs.
