Last November, NOSORH released the State Office of Rural Health Roadmap for Working with Vulnerable Hospitals and Communities followed by a webinar to share best practices from SORH working with these vulnerable communities. A valuable resource from this Roadmap is a SORH Self-Assessment to help SORH determine what role they should or should not play in providing technical assistance to vulnerable hospitals and communities. The assessment is meant to be a general guide for discussion and framework for articulating the technical assistance role of the SORH. It’s important to note that the role of the SORH may need to change over time, depending on the technical assistance needs of the vulnerable hospitals and communities. More resources to assist SORH with this issue can be found on the NOSORH website.
