Location: Duluth, Minnesota
The goal of the Flex Program Workshop is to provide new or existing Flex Program staff an orientation to the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility (Flex) Program. The Flex Program Workshop covers multiple topics, including basic critical access hospital finance, quality and performance improvement concepts, information on emergency medical services (EMS), community benefit, and some hints for achieving a successful state program. Each of the sessions will be presented by either The Center staff or a subject matter expert, including speakers from FORHP and the Flex Monitoring Team. All of the speakers have vast knowledge and rural experience in the subject area. A webinar will be held prior to the Workshop to provide participants with helpful introductory information such as the history and overview of the Flex Program and available tools and resources from TASC. By the completion of the Workshop, participants will have insight about what services TASC provides and how TASC can assist you, and TASC, in turn, will learn more about your state Flex Programs. Additionally, there will be three follow-up calls after the Workshop to continue to build knowledge about Flex-related topics.
The Flex Program Workshop is supported by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and coordinated by the Technical Assistance and Services Center (TASC), a program of the National Rural Health Resource Center.
