Recipients of the 2022 MultiPlan Rural Health Grant Announced
MultiPlan Corporation (NYSE:MPLN), a leading provider of data analytics and technology-enabled cost management, and payment and revenue integrity solutions to the U.S. healthcare industry, announces the recipients of its 2022 Rural Health Grant. The two hospitals selected to receive this year’s grants have each submitted creative proposals that use technology to help address the healthcare needs of people in their community.
The recipients of the 2022 MultiPlan Rural Health Grant are:
- Cimarron Memorial Hospital in Boise City, Oklahoma
- Cheyenne County Hospital in St. Francis, Kansas
Cimarron Memorial Hospital serves a community of 2,300 residents spread across 1,800 square miles in Oklahoma. With no public transportation in this rural area, which is home to many ranching and farming families, traveling for healthcare visits is especially challenging. The hospital will use the MultiPlan Rural Health Grant to launch a mobile telehealth unit that provides healthcare services to patients throughout the county.
Cheyenne County Hospital is the sole healthcare provider for a 50-mile radius in this northwest corner of Kansas. During the height of the pandemic, the hospital developed a program in partnership with the local county health department to provide behavioral health services remotely for older members of the community through computer tablets and paying for Internet service. The MultiPlan Rural Health Grant will help continue and expand this program through the purchase of additional tablets and providing Internet service for patients in need.
“We received 81 applications for our Rural Health Grant this year and I wish we could fund all of these worthy programs,” stated Bruce Singleton, Senior Vice President, Network Development Strategy for MultiPlan. He added, “The two recipients selected illustrate the valuable role that technology plays in helping healthcare providers deliver care to people in their communities.”
