The Rural Collaborative

Vision, Values, Mission and Purpose

We defend, create and design the future of rural health care through collective strategy and action.

To accelerate the advancement of rural healthcare:


The Rural Collaborative

Shared Services, Shared Programs and Preferred Member Pricing

To reduce costs, standardize processes and remove redundancies, a key component of the Collaborative goes beyond just centralization or consolidation. Shared services and programs are operated like a business while also delivering services to our members lower costs as compared to external models.

Alternative Payment Models through Value-Based Contracting

Healthcare reimbursement is evolving away from a per visit environment towards a community health and value-based approach. The Collaborative members work together to negotiate value-based programs with health insurance companies.

Statewide Peer Networking

The Collaborative hosts multiple committees and groups across our membership to share best practices, identify new opportunities, and standardized protocols, policies and procedures.
