The New England Rural Health RoundTable Awarded Grant
For Focusing on Rural Health Care Quality
Concord, NH - The National Rural Health Association recently announced that the New England Rural Health RoundTable was the recipient of one of the eight grants promoting health care quality in rural America.

These grants are part of Quality Through Collaboration: The NRHA Quality Initiative and are aimed at helping state rural health associations implement the following recommendations of the recent Institute of Medicine Report Quality Through Collaboration: The Future of Rural Health.

  • Address personal and population health needs at the community level
  • Establish a stronger quality improvement support structure to assist rural health systems and professionals
  • Enhance human resource capacity of rural communities
  • Ensure the financial stability of rural health care systems
  • Build information and communications technology infrastructure.

"The NRHA is excited to support the initiatives of state rural health associations in furthering quality in rural America," said Alan Morgan, Interim Executive Director of the NRHA. "State rural health associations are an important partner with the NRHA in providing information on quality care to rural communities."
