Commonwealth Fund: Findings on Rural Health. One Critical Access Hospital in Wisconsin used advance practice nurses to address a shortage in primary care physicians.  The innovative approach led to shorter stays, better quality of care, and greater patient satisfaction. This and other new models of care are outlined in a new report from The Commonwealth Fund, Transforming Care: Reporting on Health System Improvement. States like Pennsylvania use global payments to help rural hospitals struggling from loss of inpatient revenue, and rural providers are partnering more with community leaders to address social determinants of health
