The 2017 Flex Program Reverse Site Visit is an opportunity for state Flex Program grantees to convene and share information about the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility (Flex) Program and critical access hospitals (CAHs). This event will focus on the latest information in the Flex Program including discussion of how delivering value in health care will impact CAHs. States will share stories of their Flex Program experiences and successes with one another, with their project officers at the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) and with other staff of FORHP. We look forward to your attendance at this educational and informative event.
- Discover ways to communicate the value of your state Flex Program

- Identify opportunities to implement present best practices and lessons learned by CAHs and state Flex Programs in supporting performance improvement in all of the Flex Program areas

The intended audience for the Reverse Site Visit is State Office Directors and Flex Coordinators/other key Flex personnel (two per state).
