Featuring the latest strategies and innovations of leaders of Sanford Health, American Academy of Family Physicians and Homeward Health, our ‘Rural Health: Pathway to Progress’ report pulls back the curtain to uncover the pathway to higher quality care provision for the 60 million people that comprise Rural America!

Our gathered group of experts in the rural health space will provide their visions for how we can take significant steps towards:

Overcoming major workforce challenges through a combination of residency programs, further investment in programs for ‘homegrown’ medical students and deployment of basic automation and EMR’s that are interoperable with other local providers to reduce workloads

Increasing access to specialist care in rural areas by leveraging nationwide telehealth projects that negate proximity issues to provide care, developing agreements with ‘rotating specialists’ and providing pop up clinics and transportation services for more isolated groups

Fending off rampant cost pressures by investing in teams dedicated to applying to and attaining approval for available grants, entering into partnerships with larger provider groups, and exploring the potential of more flexible, value-based arrangements in rural settings

It’s time we work together to create shared strategy for a healthier, happier Rural America! We at Reuters Events Healthcare are looking to encourage this thinking and if you would like to contribute in future please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
