The RMOMS Program seeks to improve maternal care in rural communities by:

  • Collecting data on rural hospital obstetric services;
  • Building networks to coordinate continuum of care;
  • Leveraging telehealth and specialty care; and
  • Improving financial sustainability.

RMOMS is a four-year program structured by one year of planning followed by three years of implementation. FORHP is also funding an evaluation to learn what helps and hinders maternal care and the delivery of high-quality, culturally responsive care in rural areas—and will use these results to replicate the program.
