Dec 29, 2020

Nancy Myers, VP, leadership and system innovation for the AHA, discussed how rural hospitals are implementing population health tactics with Tim Gronniger, CEO and president of Caravan Health. They also were joined by special guest Rachelle Schultz, president and CEO of Winona Health, an AHA member hospital.

Rural and critical access hospitals often face a unique set of challenges, different than larger ex-urban health systems. As experts in population health with a depth of knowledge on the ACO investment model, Caravan brings an interesting perspective to this conversation.


“Through the AHA Associate Program, we were a featured thought leader on a podcast and AHA’s Rural Digital and Innovation Affinity Group. The program is a great way to share ideas with hospitals. We are excited to participate.”
