New Rural Innovation Profile: Community Care Integration

The Rural Health Value team recently released a new Rural Innovation Profile focused on how a rural Medicaid coordinated care organization reinvests the money it earns through achieving improvement targets to strengthen local capacity for organizations to work together and improve population health.
