The Minnesota Path to Value (MNPTV) Project is supported through a grant from the Minnesota Department of Health, Office of Rural Health and Primary Care to work with six selected Minnesota critical access hospitals (CAHs), and their communities, as they begin the care coordination journey to improve population health by sustaining an integrated clinical and community-based care delivery model.

Rural Health Innovations (RHI) will provide technical assistance through education, webinars, peer calls, and workshops; combined with individual on-site community planning events to develop customized solutions for their unique communities.

This tried and true approach includes one-on-one coaching and follow-up to support sustained transformation within the individual hospital-community collaboratives and workgroups. Program evaluation is an on-going activity. 

The MNPTV Project is for hospitals that are ready to climb toward population health and improve the health status of their communities. Change takes time and the rural path to value is a multi-year approach.
