Part 1: Historical and Theoretical Underpinnings This set of six manuscripts describes the content and impact of the WAMI Rural Hospital Project (RHP), a research and development effort supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, designed to improve the delivery of health services in six rural communities in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. The major objective of the RHP—an activity which spanned a four‐year period from 1985 through 1988—was to assist the project communities in improving the financial stability and quality of care of their local health care systems. Special attention was directed at helping the communities determine and implement an appropriate scope of health services, improve management and governance of the local health care enterprise, recruit and retain additional health personnel, and increase the extent to which community residents used local health services. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Rural Health Wiley

Abstract

This set of six manuscripts describes the content and impact of the WAMI Rural Hospital Project (RHP), a research and development effort supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, designed to improve the delivery of health services in six rural communities in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. The major objective of the RHP—an activity which spanned a four‐year period from 1985 through 1988—was to assist the project communities in improving the financial stability and quality of care of their local health care systems. Special attention was directed at helping the communities determine and implement an appropriate scope of health services, improve management and governance of the local health care enterprise, recruit and retain additional health personnel, and increase the extent to which community residents used local health services.
