Rural Relevance Study – 2017
The Rural Relevance Study offers the most comprehensive assessment of rural healthcare in America. This year’s study explores many factors impacting rural provider sustainability – from population health disparity to the unintended consequences of policy – while examining lessons learned from rural value leaders. In 2017, rural healthcare faces yet another wave of uncertainty and the Rural Relevance Study once again offers the definitive lens into rural performance.
“This new research builds upon six years of analysis and is intended to inform and guide rural providers and legislators about the state of rural healthcare in the U.S., as well as the impact of pending policy changes, including the potential repeal or replacement of the ACA.”
– Michael Topchik, national leader of The Chartis Center for Rural Health
