Colorado Hospital Associations created a workflow based on Data Investigation, Assessment, Defining Goals, Training & Partnerships, Tactical Interventions, Performance Management, and Optimizing Rural Health to strengthen rural communities.

Furthermore, four focus areas were established to support the workflow: Leverage Data to Inform System Development and Interventions, Increase Leadership and Workforce Capacity, Improve Access to Excellent and Holistic Care, and Strengthen Partnerships and Collaborations.
