  • Improving access to care for vulnerable patients
  • Reducing adverse events
  • Addressing root causes of near miss, adverse, or sentinel events
  • Using multidisciplinary teams to implement new strategies for emerging patient health needs
  • Managing population health across the care continuum

Awardees will be recognized at the Oregon Rural Health Conference in central Oregon in the fall.
