The Rural Health Care Delivery System Assessment Tool was created and designed to provide transformational rural health care and community leaders a comprehensive and systematic approach to examine their local health care systems. This resource can be used as both a self-assessment and as a way to compare one system or community to another, sharing information with both parties. The tool is designed to prompt health care leaders to carefully and objectively assess their capacities relative to the needs of their communities both during and after the acute impact of COVID-19.
