NOSORH would like to express sincere appreciation to all members who completed the 2017 Annual Member Survey! An 86% response rate was achieved thanks to the more than 70 SORH staff who responded. The information gathered from this survey is already being used to shape NOSORH activities. Session topics for the four Rural Health Roundtables, which will occur at the NOSORH Annual Meeting, were gleaned from the survey responses. A quick look at the survey responses show:

  • 96% of respondents reported being satisfied with the Branch Newsletter
  • 85% of members responded the Board is effective and knowledgeable about rural health trends and policy issues
  • Top 4 educational interests are: Behavioral Health Integration, Data Analysis and Visualization, Communicating the Value of your SORH, and Workforce

NOSORH plans to break down the data and provide committee chairs with information on perceived value, educational topics, and strategies for the upcoming year. In addition, the NOSORH Board will receive aggregate results at their 2018 Board Planning Meeting to ensure that the strategic priorities of the organization are aligned with the needs of the entire membership.

Thanks again to the over 70 NOSORH members who took the time to complete the survey. If you have comments, suggestions or concerns anytime, the NOSORH staff is always just a phone call or email away!
