Improving Access to Quality Healthcare for Rural Oklahoma

Rural Health Network (RHN) of Oklahoma was established through a Rural Health Network Development Grant awarded in 2008 through the Office of Rural Health Policy, Health Resources and Services Administration of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

RHN's purpose is to improve the health of rural Oklahoma by building a sustainable network of integrated services. This includes electronic health records (EHRs) and health information exchange (HIE) consulting, creating county health improvement organizations (CHIOs) and educating health care practitioners and the community about health care law, among other things.

RHN is also positioning to reach eight strategic objectives:

  • Foster sustainability through revenue generating services

  • Facilitate Network peer sharing roundtables

  • Conduct a member needs assessment in an effort to provide support and additional resources

  • Help members transition to a value-based care model that supports cost-sharing

  • Develop Board committees to help impact community engagement

  • Promote Network visibility

  • Provide public relations through outreach and education

  • Develop the Network's leader capacity
