RME Collaborative

RURAL CHAMPION

Rural Medical Education (RME) Collaborative, a division of Talem Health, aims to support the educational needs of rural healthcare professionals by providing high-quality, evidence-based continuing medical education. Through strategic partnerships and planning, we customize our educational programs to meet the unique challenges faced by rural populations and providers.

RME Collaborative is partnering again with NOSORH for the 2nd Annual Rural Health Clinical Congress, a free virtual live CME/CE event held in conjunction with National Rural Health Day. The Rural Health Clinical Congress is designed to take the distance out of learning, providing high-level, practical education for rural healthcare professionals through a virtual learning environment. This year’s agenda will feature a variety of sessions and topics, including asthma, adolescent and adult immunizations, hepatitis C, teledermatology, the impact of COVID-19, and more. This half-day event will be broadcast live on Saturday, November 21, 2020, starting at 8:00 am CT. There is no cost to register.

The Chartis Group

EXCLUSIVE PARTNER

Since 2010, The Chartis Center for Rural Health has explored the stability of the rural health safety net. Despite continued downward pressure on rural hospital operating margins and health disparities, our research indicates that rural hospitals are successfully moving the needle on performance and delivering higher quality care. 

Data on this year’s Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals show performance levels at or exceeding the 80th percentile in areas such as Quality, Patient Perspective, and Charges. Iowa leads the nation with the most 2019 Top 100 CAHs with 15, followed by Nebraska (9), North Dakota (9), and Wisconsin (8). In all, 24 states are represented this year. 

Nearly 40 percent of this year’s Top 100 CAHs have received this honor more than five times, while 19 hospitals earned Top 100 status for the first time in 2019. These statistics demonstrate both an ability to sustain a higher level of performance and apply proven strategies for improvement to current financial and operational practices.

Rural South Carolina Art Competition

Each year, the South Carolina Office of Rural Health holds a rural South Carolina art competition. The competition is open to all art forms, but typically the submissions include paintings and photographs.
