Financial Improvement | Operational Improvement | Patient Satisfaction | Lean/Quality Training

The Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility (Flex) Program provides funding to spur quality and performance improvement activities, stabilize rural hospital finance and integrate emergency medical services (EMS) into existing health care systems. The program encourages the development of cooperative systems of care in rural areas to increase efficiencies. Forty-nine of Montana’s critical access hospitals benefit from the program and participate in the Performance Improvement Network (PIN), which facilitates the sharing of resources related to meeting these goals.
