Kansas Rural Hospital Optimizing Performance

The Kansas Rural Hospital Optimizing Performance (KRHOP) administers the Federal Rural Hospital Flexibility (FLEX) grant program in the state of Kansas. The purpose of the FLEX program is to enhance access to rural health care services through designation of Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), development of rural health networks, and the establishment of programs to improve and integrate rural emergency medical services into rural health care systems and their communities.

KRHOP is a partnership of the Kansas Hospital Education and Research Foundation (KHERF), Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), Kansas Board of Emergency Medical Services, and the Kansas Medical Society. KDHE is responsible for program oversight and is the designating authority for CAHs in Kansas. KHERF provides program information, application assistance and rural health network development support.

It is important for hospital boards to understand what types of services patients in their region are seeking and where those patients are going for care. Please join KHA for a Noon Briefing on Friday, June 30, where Sally Othmer, senior director of data and quality, will explore how to use generated reports from the Analytic Advantage Plus website to support strategic market-share decisions by identifying trends in both inpatient and outpatient activity.
