The goal of the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) Flex Program Workshop is to provide new or existing Flex Program staff an orientation to the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility (Flex) Program. The FORHP Flex Program Workshop covers multiple topics, including basic critical access hospital finance, quality and performance improvement concepts, information on emergency medical services (EMS), population health and Flex Program core competencies and best practices. Each of the sessions will be presented by either staff of the National Rural Health Resource Center (The Center) or a subject matter expert, including speakers from FORHP, the Flex Monitoring Team and Rural Quality Improvement Technical Assistance (RQITA). 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 the Technical Assistance and Services Center (TASC), a program of the National Rural Health Resource Center. By the completion of the Workshop, participants will have gain a better understanding of the Flex Program's goals and services available to support Flex Program excellence.
The Flex Program Workshop is supported by FORHP, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and coordinated by TASC. Space is limited!
