The Rural Health Value team is pleased to share a new Rural Innovation Profile:
This profile summarizes experiences of three rural Colorado hospital participants in the CO HTP, a mandatory statewide five-year program that ties Medicaid supplemental payments to hospitals’ ability to meet performance targets. The goal is to drive change to improve healthcare outcomes, equity, and access for all patients and prepare Colorado hospitals for future value-based care and payment models.
