The RHIhub recently published a Rural Monitor article entitled EMS Leaders Speak. With the recent changes in healthcare delivery, many rural clinics and hospitals are concerned about the future of their communities’ healthcare, especially their emergency medical services. Will EMS in rural areas survive these changes and is there an opportunity to thrive in a volume-to-value system?

Five rural EMS leaders were asked to explore the possible challenges and opportunities in the transformation of rural healthcare delivery.

Also, check out RHIhub’s new and improved Grant Writing for Rural Healthcare Projects topic guide. This updated topic guide provides tips on searching for rural-specific funding, grant proposal preparation, building successful funding relationships, and planning for program sustainability. The guide was created with input from NOSORH’s own, Kassie Clarke, as well as Brad Gibbens from the UND Center for Rural Health, and is maintained by RHIhub’s Funding Specialist, Jana Reese.
