Exploring the Path Forward for Rural Health Care

Exploring the Path Forward for Rural Health Care. The AHA Rural Health Leadership Conference logo.Rural health care leaders are transforming their organizations amid unprecedented challenges. The path forward will involve innovation and strategic partnerships that cut across the care continuum, evolving payment models, support for workforce resilience, effective leveraging of digital technologies, attention to the social determinants of health and implementation of new care models.

Collaboration among rural health care executives will be critical during this transformative period when the field begins to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. To explore the new landscape in greater detail, the nation’s top leaders will come together during the virtual AHA Rural Health Care Leadership Conference Feb. 17-18.

Practitioners, governance leaders and senior executives will share resources and strategies for accelerating the shift to a more integrated and sustainable rural health system. Participants in the virtual conference also can take part in peer group meetings before, during and after the conference. The groups will be organized around issues like innovation and digital transformation, workforce resilience, behavioral health and pathways to recovery.

Register by Jan. 8 to take advantage of early-bird pricing and to participate in the peer group meetings. For the complete agenda and to register, visit the conference website.
