Health System Support for Rural Value-Based Care

National Rural Health Resource Center

This presentation follows the Value-Based Care is Here webinar. The rural journey from volume to value need not be made alone. Health system affiliations (current or in the future) should advance rural healthcare organizations' value-based care capacity, and thus future success. In this webinar, Dr. MacKinney will provide a brief overview of healthcare affiliations today. He will then discuss findings from his recent health system interviews that explored the health systems' role in facilitating rural value-based care success. Finally, Dr. MacKinney will outline what rural value-based care support healthcare organizations should expect from health systems. 

Speaker: A. Clinton MacKinney, MD, MS

By the end of this session, participants will be able to: 

  • Recognize rural healthcare organizations' future in health system value-based care initiatives 
  • Understand what support health systems should provide to rural healthcare organizations transitioning from volume to value
  • Make wiser affiliation decisions based on health system support for value-based care
