This proposal seeks to continue our work on the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility Program's Monitoring Project into Year Five of this five year project. The work involves the evaluation and monitoring of state and hospital activities under this federal program and the development of indicators to monitor hospital, community, and state performance under this program. It expands our portfolio of rural work as well as our work in performance improvement and outcome/performance indicator development. The project provides opportunities for students from our graduate programs to participate in an ongoing national research and evaluation project.
