Improving the Delivery of Care
Across Rural America

Pairing iVantage Health Analytics’ extensive knowledge of rural healthcare, its research and solution portfolio with the expertise and resources of The Chartis Group, the Center provides the insight and solutions needed to address providers’ biggest challenges and drive performance improvement.
