empowering LEADERS TO EMBRACE HEALTH SOLUTIONS
Transforming rural health to realize the full health potential of rural communities requires a multi-layered strategy. Leadership and innovation in access, value, health improvements, outcomes monitoring and data analytics are all critical ingredients for success. One of the critical ingredients needed to transform rural health is establishing community-wide initiatives for improving the health of the whole population. Such initiatives must align the culture of health care and the culture of the community. When multiple community partners align around core values and strategy, they can work together to improve access, provide more efficient care and achieve better outcomes.
