According to the federal Agency for Heath Research and Quality, the quality of primary care is significantly lower in rural communities than urban. Since 1990, rural residents have lost 2.4 years of life compared to metropolitan areas. Managing population health can change this outcome.

Join Caravan Health's Lynn Barr for a talk and Q&A that will outline the unique challenges faced by rural clinicians, illustrate their strengths, and highlight the successes of rural health systems who are among the nation's most successful providers managing population health.

An energetic entrepreneur with 30 years of experience in health care, Lynn Barr has shepherded four start-ups and 12 medical inventions through research, the FDA, and on to worldwide markets. Today, through Caravan Health, Lynn is a recognized leader in the development and execution of national scale programs that bring better care to patients and help health care practices succeed. Caravan Health supports more than 17,000 independent primary care providers making the transformation to value-based payments with affordable, simple solutions that achieve outstanding results.
