The Rural Health Value team recently released two updated resources:
- Engaging Your Board and Community in Value-Based Care Conversations
Board and community engagement is critical to value-based care and payment success. Healthcare organization leaders can use Rural Health Value’s discussion questions to inspire lively board and community conversations that both enlighten participants and advance value-based care.
- State Innovation Model Testing Awards: Highlighting Rural Focus
Learn about activities and early accomplishments from eleven states that used their State Innovation Model (SIM) awards from the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to impact healthcare delivery in rural areas.

One-page summaries describe rural-relevant, value-based programs currently or recently implemented by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), primarily by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and its Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI).
This tool helps a rural healthcare organization assess readiness for the shift of payments from volume to value. The resulting report may be used to guide the development of action plans.
