Pursuing a mission of keeping you safely ahead in the increasingly complex game of risk and insurance gives us the freedom to look beyond any particular set of products and services.

This freedom is foundational to how RHIA defines its role in the national rural hospital community. RHIA is here to ensure all program members benefit from three essential elements to stay safely ahead in the risk and insurance management game:

  • Leveraging collective buying power
  • Sharing experience and wisdom
  • Transforming risk into an asset

Leveraging Collective Buying Power

One rural hospital negotiating on its own simply does not have the clout a group of rural hospitals has when it comes to getting the best possible value and service from vendors and insurance companies. Membership in RHIA instantly gives your hospital access to the collective buying power of over 80 rural hospitals.

Sharing Experience and Wisdom

To successfully deliver on the promise of its mission, RHIA champions thought leadership and the exchange of practical experience, new ideas, and innovative risk and insurance management strategies.

Transforming Risk Into An Asset

Traditional risk avoidance is dead because rural hospitals can no longer afford to outsource all risk to insurers. Besides, if the insurers can make money on covering your risk, and you know your risk better than they do, it stands to reason you can transform your risk into an asset.

This is good news for those taking a modern view and embracing risk as an asset. When you are willing to own some of your risk, you are on the path to achieving sustainable cost control, improved prevention and ultimately, much greater protection and prosperity.
