Rural Health Network Development Planning Program – HRSA-15-036

Website:

Click here

Sponsor:

Health Resources and Services Administration

Deadline:

January 9, 2015

Purpose:

The purpose of the Network Planning program is to assist in the development of an integrated healthcare network, if the network participants do not have a history of formal collaborative efforts.  Health care networks can be an effective strategy to help smaller rural health care providers and health care service organizations align resources and strategies, achieve economies of scale and efficiency, and address challenges more effectively as a group than as single providers.  The Network Planning program promotes the planning and development of healthcare networks in order to: (i) achieve efficiencies; (ii) expand access to, coordinate, and improve the quality of essential health care services; and (iii) strengthen the rural health care system as a whole.  The health care system is undergoing a significant amount of change and this can be particularly challenging for small rural providers.  The goals of the Network Planning program represent ways to help rural providers better serve their communities given changes taking place in health care, as providers move from focusing on the volume of services to focusing on the value of services.  This program brings together key parts of a rural health care delivery system, particularly those entities that may not have collaborated in the past under a formal relationship, to work together to establish and improve local capacity and coordination of care.  Furthermore, this program supports one year of planning with the primary goal of helping networks create a foundation for their infrastructure and focusing member efforts to address important regional or local community health needs.

Amount:

$1,500,000

Awards:

15 with Award Ceiling of $100,000

Eligibility:

The lead applicant organization must be a rural non-profit or rural public entity that represents a consortium/network of three or more health care providers.  Federally-recognized tribal entities are eligible to apply as long as they are located in a rural area.  The applicant organization must be located in a non-metropolitan county or in a rural census tract of a metropolitan county, and all services must be provided in a non-metropolitan county or rural census tract.  If the applicant organization is owned by or affiliated with an urban entity or health care system, the rural component may still apply as long as the rural entity has its own Employer Identification Number (EIN) and can directly receive and administer the grant funds in the rural area.  The rural entity must be responsible for the planning, program management, financial management, and decision making of the project, and the urban parent organization must assure the ORHP in writing that, for the grant, they will exert no control over or demand collaboration with the rural entity.  This letter must be included in Attachment 10.
