Quarterly Informational Call
NCHN Members please join us for our next Quarterly Informational call at 2:00 PM ET on Monday, March 13th.
We are pleased to have four NCHN members with us on the March Informational Call discussing their impressions and takeaways from the NRHA Policy Institute held last month in Washington, DC.
Andrew Bledsoe, Northeast Kentuck Regional Health Information Organization; Carolyn Bruce, Western Healthcare Alliance; Beth O'Connor, Virginia Rural Health Association; and Tim Size, Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative will be discussing what and how they reported the information they heard in DC back to their members. They will also share any specific topics or issues they are tracking that impacts their networks and members.
Brock Slabach, NRHA, shared with us NRHA's tracking of legislation and efforts related to health care that affects rural health delivery systems at the end of February. We hope you can be with your peers on this call as they assist us in bringing a focus to specific concerns network leaders have identified with the looming changes to the healthcare system and discuss what they are monitoring for their organizations.
NCHN members have been sent Readytalk invitations. If you have not received one , please contact Tara Long - firstname.lastname@example.org.
NCHN’s March ER Call - Friday, March 17 @ 11:00 AM ET; 10:00 AM CT; 9:00 AM MT; 8:00 AM PT
ER calls provide a monthly opportunity for NCHN members to engage in facilitated dialogue and learn from one another. If you have a topic you'd like to discuss on an ER Call please contact Rebecca at email@example.com. Here are a few of the recent topics.
- Strategic Thinking
- Healthcare Networks' Ongoing Viability
- Communication in Networks
- Art and Science of Communication
The focus of our next call is: Leaders and boards of rural healthcare networks across the country are assessing the services they provide and are asking:
- Is this the best way to provide this service?
- What other models of providing this service exist?
- Do we have the demand for continuing these services?
- What new services should we consider?
During our March ER call, we will consider two examples of network services. We anticipate these examples will serve as models and assist in answering the above questions. We will look specifically at recruiting and group purchasing as the two examples of network services. We'll consider the technology supporting these two key product lines and the impact they have on value-based care. Come with best practices from your network, your curiosity and your willingness to consider new approaches to business lines that have been very successful in the past.
NCHN members will receive Readytalk invitations. If you don't receive one by March.10th, please contact Tara Long firstname.lastname@example.org
