Overview: The purpose of the RHND Program is to support integrated health care networks that collaborate to achieve efficiencies; expand access to, coordinate, and improve the quality of basic health care services and associated health outcomes; and strengthen the rural health care system as a whole. HRSA intends for the RHND Program to address gaps in service, enhance systems of care, and expand capacity of the local rural health care system. Many rural providers have historically worked together to address these challenges by creating networks that foster collaboration and coordination, and address structural challenges inherent in rural health care delivery, resulting in reduced burden and costs on the rural health care system. The RHND Program will focus on the following four program domains: I.) Improve access: by addressing gaps in care, workforce shortages, better workflows, and/or improving the quality of health care services II.) Expand capacity and services: by creating effective systems through the development of knowledge, skills, structures, and leadership models III.) Enhance outcomes: by improving patient and/or network development outcomes through expanding or strengthening the network’s services, activities, or interventions IV.)  Sustainability: by positioning the network to prepare for sustainable health programs through value-based care and population health management.
