TN-RHC Network Planning Activities

Tennessee Rural Health Clinic (TN-RHC) Network Updates

July 1, 2022, Rural Health Association of Tennessee (RHA) received a HRSA Planning Grant (P10RH45771‐01‐01)  to build capacity to support the state's more than 200 Rural Health Clinics (RHCs). With an Advisory Committee of independent and provider-based RHCs and others the group conducted site visits, surveys, and focus groups to explore how RHA can support integrating RHCs into the larger healthcare system. Here's what we've been up to! Activities have been made possible thanks to the generous support of National Rural Health Association, Center's for Disease Control (CDC), and Health and Human Resources Services Agency (HRSA).

September 20th-22nd, RHA sent TN-RHC Advisory Member Candance Garrett with Ascension/Saint Thomas to National Rural Health  Association's RHC conference in Kansas City, MO for the latest in RHC policy and updates. Also pictured, Alicia Calloway, RHA's Chief Operating Officer, Andrew Burnett, THA's VP Rural Hospitals, and Jacy Warrell, RHA's CEO.

October 24-26, RHA sent TN-RHC Advisory Members Tammy Crawford of Hometown Health Clinic and Mischelle Ferrell of Cumberland Family Care to National Association of Rural Health Clinics (NARHC) conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. The group came back with great ideas and information for the TN-RHC Network!

October 28, 2022, Zane Seals, Chief Financial Officer of TennCare, and Drew Staniewski, TennCare's Deputy Director provided RHCs with updates concerning the Public Health Emergency (PHE) "Unwinding" and other updates as it relates to providing care to the state's Medicaid Patients. Members may access the event training on RHA's Resource Center. For more information on the PHE unwinding, visit TennCare's website.
