To support rural hospitals in their consideration of the Rural Emergency Hospital (REH) conversion and with the application and conversion process; through educational resources and learning events, customized financial modeling, and strategic planning.
Mathematica is providing technical assistance to rural hospitals in their consideration of REH as a path to improve rural hospitals’ financial outlook, and ultimately prevent hospital closures. Given our past work in financial modeling for rural Pennsylvania hospitals, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Community Health Access and Rural Transformation (CHART) Model, we are the ideal partner for supporting REH.

Mathematica supports the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) under the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) by assisting The Rural Emergency Hospital Technical Assistance Center to providing direct technical assistance to small rural hospitals, critical access hospitals, and rural community stakeholders who are interested in exploring the benefits and feasibility of converting to REH. Our technical assistance activities include custom financial modeling, virtual learning events, and developing and sharing educational resources. Mathematica will also monitor the effectiveness of technical assistance received by hospitals throughout the initial period of this new provider type.
