Butler Health System recently received recognition for successful implementation of an outreach program grant.
Earlier this week, the Rural Health Information Hub honored BHS for the use of the Regional Alliance Chronic Disease Coordination and Management Program to follow patients as they transition through various stages of care during recovery from chronic disease.
This program also connects patients to community resources that continue to aid in the management of specific chronic disease. The seminars offered by BHS in connection with this program have been moved to online telehealth options as a result of COVID-19.
The grant for this program comes from the Health Resources and Services Administration Federal Office of Rural Health Policy.
