Rural Health Task Force

Overview

Since its inception, SCW has engaged many surgeons, quality leaders, and hospitals across the state. Through this extensive engagement, rural providers and hospital quality leaders have identified the critical need for tailored, rural-specific quality initiatives that address the unique implementation and measurement barriers to surgical quality improvement. This has led to the development of the SCW Rural Task Force (RTF). The SCW RTF was launched in late May 2019 and includes rural surgeons, rural hospital quality staff and rural patient representatives. All rural providers are invited to be a part of the SCW Rural Task Force by completing the priorities feedback survey which can be accessed by clicking on the button below. The survey will close on July 5. At that time we will share the feedback with all members who expressed an interest in serving on the Task Force, and begin to develop a quality initiative plan for 2019-2020.
