Rural Provider Leadership Summit Findings

The purpose of the Summit was to identify strategies for rural provider engagement in transitioning to value-based reimbursement systems. A report with the findings of the Summit has been developed to assist rural hospital leaders in engaging rural health providers in the transition to value-based purchasing and population health. This report is designed to help rural hospitals leaders and providers during the transition.
