Solutions for critical access and rural healthcare providers
Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) and rural hospitals fill a vital niche in the new healthcare and have different needs and challenges than their larger, more urban counterparts. At iVantage Health Analytics, we understand the unique situations faced by CAH & rural hospitals. Our deep experience with rural and critical access hospital networks – from Maine to Hawaii – has resulted in an ever-improving suite of products specifically tailored to this distinct group of healthcare providers.
Rural Healthcare studies from iVantage:
Our findings suggest that rural has figured out what it does well and has optimized those services. The perception that rural hospitals are more costly, inefficient and have lower quality and satisfaction is empirically challenged.
Each year, iVantage Health analyzes millions of emergency department visits to uncover performance and trends in rural emergency operations. A summary of the 2011 data is here; the full report will be available shortly.
Join hundreds of ED peers in a nationwide survey on operations, staffing, volumes and case mix. It is open to all CAH and rural hospitals.
