Flex Monitoring Team
The Flex Monitoring Team (FMT) is a consortium of the Rural Health Research Centers at the Universities of Minnesota, Southern Maine, and North Carolina. The FMT is funded by the Office of Rural Health Policy, Grant No. U27RH1080 to evaluate the impact of the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexibility Grant Program in three areas:
- improving access to and the quality of health care services;
- improving the financial performance of CAHs; and
- engaging rural communities in health care system development.
The University of Minnesota’s FMT projects focus on quality performance measures and reporting systems and quality improvement activities in Critical Access Hospitals.
