Description

The Illinois Critical Access Hospital Network (ICAHN), working with the Center for Governmental Studies (CGS) at Northern Illinois University recently released, “Illinois Critical Access Hospitals: Managing Healthy Communities in Rural Illinois,” the third in a series of white papers focused on rural health care issues. The ICAHN and CGS worked with hospital administrators across rural Illinois to examine PHM challenges, alternative revenue models, and promising practices that can help small hospitals respond to the new health care environment. The report identifies population health management approaches currently underway in Illinois critical access hospitals (CAHs) and other health care organizations. It also examines factors affecting hospital outreach activities to help them have the most impact on their clients and communities. Many rural hospitals and health care organizations are using new approaches to make local populations healthier. Some of these innovative approaches are summarized in the report to guide similar activities in other hospitals.
