DRCHSD Finance Series: Quantifying the Rural Value Proposition to Existing and Prospective Partners
Session Description: As the payment system evolves from Fee-for-Service to value/population-based payment, rural health systems have an increasing value proposition in the healthcare market. However, rural hospitals and health systems are often misunderstood by larger health systems. This misunderstanding has led to the undervaluation, both historically and likely in the future, of rural health systems. This presentation highlights important value drivers of rural health systems, and how they can be show-cased to the benefit these rural systems and their communities.
Time: Thursday, July 14th from 11:00 – 12:00 pm CST
Speaker: Eric Shell, CPA, MBA and Jeff Sommer, MPP - Stroudwater Associates
