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 personnel 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 communication technology infrastructure.

The $9,500 grant will be used to fund trainings and other initiatives in New England that will focus on promoting the principles of the Institute Of Medicine report.

The New England Rural Health RoundTable is a non-profit, membership driven organization composed of a diverse group of individuals and organizations committed to improving health and health care throughout rural New England communities. The RoundTable was established in 1997 with funding from the National Rural Health Association and the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy and serves as the regional rural health association for New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.

"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.
