The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) announced a new opportunity to apply for federal funding that improves access and quality of care through rural health consortiums. The program will invest approximately $7.5 million over three years to support up to 10 applicant organizations. Each consortium will include at least three health care entities that will coordinate strategies for collaboration, leadership and workforce, improved outcomes, and sustainability in rural communities.
Previously funded networks under the 2015 -2018 Rural Health Care Coordination Network Partnership Grant included 13 central counties lead by St. Mary’s called Completing the Circle. The previously funded networks under this program designed and carried out projects focused on coordinated care for patients in the primary care setting, chronic disease management, and utilizing/enhancing Health Information Technology, among other issues for rural communities.
