Rural Healthcare Facilities
Integrated clinical and financial hospital solutions designed to meet the specific challenges of the rural hospital EHR.
Overcome the Barriers to Rural Healthcare
Patients living in the rural countryside deserve the same access to enhanced patient care as those residing in sprawling urban areas. To support our rural partners, MEDHOST has built a suite of healthcare services and solutions designed to improve EHR systems in rural areas and help those providers optimize operations, maximize patient volumes, and improve profitability.
How MEDHOST Supports Rural Providers and Patients
Compared to their urban counterparts, rural populations face mounting healthcare challenges. Socioeconomic barriers like poverty, aging demographics, and poor travel infrastructures create disproportionate gaps in the rural patient’s path to healthcare. In addition, the constant need to attract and retain skilled healthcare professionals can often stretch these providers to their limits.
MEDHOST helps rural healthcare facilities of all types and sizes facilitate improved access to care for their communities and retain staff with:
- Fully Integrated Electronic Health Records (EHR)
- Emergency Department Information System (EDIS)
- Revenue Cycle Solutions and Services
- EHR Hosting and Managed Solutions
- Continuum of Care Tools
Developed with input from clinicians and healthcare pros, built for clinicians and healthcare pros—every tool and service we provide is tuned for efficiency and fully supports your staff.
Focus on providing excellent patient care, let MEDHOST handle the rest.

Making Strides for Rural Health Advocacy
Every year, the NRHA offers rural health advocates an opportunity to speak directly with some of the country’s most influential policy and lawmakers about the real challenges faced by this nation’s rural health communities. They call it Advocacy Day, a chance for the passionate health care professionals and conference attendees to descend upon Capitol Hill and rally for the future of rural health.

Continuum of Care Tools
Streamline care for patients living in widespread areas with limited travel options.
Many rural hospitals are responsible for the health of communities inhabiting vast geographic areas. Those areas also contain some of the country’s most chronically ill—in this risky environment neither providers or patients can afford a disjointed care experience.
Community Bridge – A cross-platform online scheduling tool that streamlines the entire care coordination process for patients and healthcare professionals—from scheduling follow-up appointments to planning upcoming hospital procedures.
Condition Management – A patient portal that provides a direct connection to clinicians. The Condition Management platform encourages patients to take a more active role in their health by extending care beyond the facility and creating optimal experiences that often lead to better healthcare outcomes.
- Boosts patient satisfaction
- Better access to health data
- Enables patient self-care management
- Improves patient-provider communication
