Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA): Evaluation of the Rural Maternity and Obstetrics Management Strategies (RMOMS) Program: 2019 Cohort
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) released the second annual report evaluating the Rural Maternity and Obstetrics Management Strategies (RMOMS) Program, the first cohort of which completed its first year of implementation last August. The program uses a network approach to coordinate and improve telehealth services to increase access to care in rural areas, among others. Program awardees laid the groundwork for expanded telehealth, which they consistently identified as a major focus area to improve maternal health access. Implementation delays have pushed such efforts into the next implementation year, however all three networks made progress on telehealth initiatives during this first implementation year.
