Millions of Americans live in rural communities where their access to essential healthcare services is limited. And data shows that these rural populations have poorer health, creating an even larger need for the already limited services. Meanwhile, rural healthcare is under siege and many organizations are closing, creating an even larger challenge. This session will discuss how quality and safety leaders are rising to the occasion and stretching limited resources to drive outcomes to serve rural communities.
