Coteau des Prairies Health Care System has been chosen to be supported by the SRHT Project, to assist in the transition to value-based health care

With the support of the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP), Rural Health Innovations (RHI), a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Rural Health Resource Center, is excited to announce that Coteau des Prairies Health Care System of Sisseton, South Dakota has been chosen to be supported through the Small Rural Hospital Transition (SRHT) Project. The SRHT Project is funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) FORHP through a contract to RHI.

The purpose of the SRHT Project is to provide on-site technical assistance (TA) to support small rural hospitals in bridging the gaps between the current volume-based health care system and the newly emerging value-based system of health care delivery and payment. Participating hospitals must reside in persistent poverty areas of the U.S.

Nine hospitals were selected based on program eligibility requirements, organizational readiness, leadership and commitment to implementing consultant best practice recommendations that improve performance, as well as strategies that assist providers in transitioning to a value-based system.

Congratulations to Coteau des Prairies Health Care System for this accomplishment! For more information on the SRHT Project, visit the website at
