Your practice is secure right now.
What about the future?

Rural Solutions is our strategy for a changing healthcare economy, one based on new payment models tied to performance – a shift from volume to quality.

HHS set a goal of tying 85 percent of all traditional Medicare payments to quality or value by 2016 and 90 percent by 2018 through programs such as the Hospital Value Based Purchasing and the Hospital Readmissions Reduction Programs. “

In historic announcement, HHS sets clear goals

Why should you participate in Rural Solutions?

Rural Solutions Offers:

  • Guided Transition to Population Health. The shift is already started. Payers are moving to value-based payment models. Rural Solutions will provide you with expert guidance on implementation of new population health payment codes. With Rural Solutions you’ll have the tools you need to adjust to these new models.
  • Expanded Network. Rural Solutions partners with a broad network of providers and suppliers for comprehensive care solutions. As providers you are also free to use any consultant or diagnostic facility that you feel is most appropriate and make recommendations to add providers to the Rural Solutions.
  • Continued Independence. Rural Solutions allows you to maintain your patient base and independence as a individual private practice.
  • Care Coordination. Rural Solutions will provide you the infrastructure needed to care for high risk or chronically ill patients. For instance, the Rural Solutions has care coordinators who will act as your patient’s personal point of contact and ensure that quality care is being provided beyond your clinic and rounding hours. Electronic Medical Records (EMR) will also play a significant role in tracking, recording, and coordinating your patient’s care.
  • Protected Patient Base. By joining Rural Solutions, you’ll have the tools to better monitor and coordinate the health of your patient population.
  • Data-Supported Decision Making. As a Rural Solutions participant you’ll be equipped with tools to make sense of electronic patient data to see beyond the single patient encounter to act on opportunities for improving patient experience of care and potential cost savings.

We’re building a diverse and comprehensive network of providers.

The Rural Solutions will include Hospitals, Primary Care Clinics, Specialty Clinics, Skilled Nursing Facilities, and Home Health Providers. We would enjoy the opportunity to discuss the plan with you in more detail.
