VKG webinars are supported by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) and coordinated by the Technical Assistance and Services Center (TASC), a program of the National Rural Health Resource Center (The Center).
This framework is intended for those who manage and/or work on the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility (Flex) Program. Directors and managers within State Offices of Rural Health, state Flex Program Coordinators and other staff working with state Flex Programs are charged with supporting improvements in critical access hospitals (CAHs), population health and the integration of health services in the 45 states that participate in the Flex Program.
The primary goal of this assessment is to assist users in identifying and prioritizing opportunities for enhancing competency within their state Flex Program at the organization-level, not the individual level. Based on assessment outcomes, resources can be identified for areas in which the program self-identifies a gap or opportunity for improvement.
