    Introduction to the Science of Networks

    Introduction to the Science of Networks

    In a short moment we can all think of and imagine the immense diversity of networks that are forming all across our country. We know that networks are born out of the needs of their rural communities, especially during these complex times of change and transition within the health care environment. But we want to know more about how-to strategically build robust networks and how-to measure and evaluate the effectiveness of networks. We need to learn about the science of networks.
    In a recent RHND grantee workshop, grantees learned not only about basic network science but also how to visualize and study their own networks to leverage key strategies. The network leaders mapped the current state of their networks and then mapped the ideal state of their networks. This exercise created an opportunity for network leaders to strategically think about network relationships. The result of this kind of network thinking opens the door for figuring out how to be strategic in managing networks and how to measure and evaluation the strength and vitality of their network.

    Action Planning for Sustainability

    Action Planning for Sustainability

    The ongoing success and longevity of a grant project is dependent on the sustainability of the rural health network that is implementing it. Sustainability is defined as the network’s ability to achieve desired outcomes and maintain the ability to do so over time. The ability to do so is a goal of FORHP grant funding.
    The purpose of the Network Sustainability Action Plan Toolkit, comprised of a guide, template, and sample, is to provide a framework for rural health networks to actively plan for sustainability as network leaders deploy their networks’ business plans. Join the webinar to learn about the three phases to completing your Network Sustainability Action Plan.
