Improving the Delivery of Care
Across Rural America
Today, rural healthcare faces unique challenges: delivering cost effective and high quality care at the right access points; measurement and reporting for reimbursement under new models; and recruiting, retaining and aligning with the right providers to serve their community. The Chartis Center for Rural Health offers industry-leading knowledge and expertise, performance management solutions, research and education to help rural providers with their most pressing needs.
At The Chartis Group, our mission is to materially improve the delivery of healthcare in the world. Each day our colleagues contribute to this mission through the development and delivery of thought leadership, advisory services and tools as well as giving back to their communities through Chartis Cares. The talent and passion of our people have enabled us to meet the needs of the largest healthcare systems in the country and the people they serve. We are proud of our work with these long-standing clients, however, we knew we could do more to serve the needs of the 62 million Americans living in rural America. The formation of the Chartis Center for Rural Health with dedicated resources and customized services, tools and research will enable meaningful collaboration with rural providers on advancing the care to their communities.
