MRHA Members Needed for New Groups

The MRHA has been planning to expand work in four key areas as required by the identified needs of our members.  This work will include two new task forces and two new user groups.

EMR Task Force

This group is designed to be a temporary meeting of any facilities or providers in Mississippi interested in switching to a new electronic medical record system and who would like to work with others also looking to switch.  The goal of the group is to identify the top needs that they have with a new EMR and to identify bundled purchase options for reduced cost and maximum impact.

Delegated Credentialing/Provider Enrollment Task Force

This group is designed to bring together clinic and hospital staff working to improve their credentialing and provider enrollment services.  This is one of the most common issues that our members face, and improvement is needed.  This task force will investigate several delegated credentialing and provider enrollment options to see if they will help to improve each facilities’ processes.  

Accountable Care Organization User Group

The ACO User Group is designed to unite members of Mississippi’s ACOs into a central location for monthly learning sessions.  This user group will meet once per month to share updates and best practices on what has helped them to achieve reduced cost and increased quality in the nation’s new population health model.

Telehealth User Group

The Telehealth User Group will combine efforts with the Mississippi Telehealth Association and unite providers, users, and technology companies together to discover better ways to deliver telehealth and improve access to quality healthcare and increased profitability of telehealth.  In addition, the user group will work to complete a new manual for telehealth implementation in the state.

We encourage all members to be a part of these groups.  Contact us at president@mississippirural.org to sign-up.  Work will begin soon, so don’t delay!
