The Delta Region Rural Health Workforce Training Program provides funding to develop strategic networks that will support the recruitment, formal training, certification, and placement of current and future administrative support or business operations professionals for rural healthcare facilities in the Delta Region. The program seeks to enhance healthcare delivery in Delta communities by addressing the need for trained professionals working in the following administrative support occupations: medical coding and billing, insurance claims processing, health information management, clinical documentation, business operations for healthcare organizations, and supply chain and materials management.

  • Establish or leverage partnerships with rural-serving DRA region community-based organizations to recruit participants from rural communities into the program
  • Establish or leverage partnerships with rural DRA region healthcare facilities to place participants for hands-on training and employment upon completion of the program
  • Establish or leverage partnerships with healthcare facilities participating in the Delta Region Community Health Systems Development Program to recruit current administrative support staff to participate in training and to recruit facilities to serve as practicum sites for hands-on learning and future employment for program participants
  • Provide financial support to participants/trainees for tuition, books, software, certification testing fees, childcare support, other items to facilitate the successful completion of the program
