Division Central Management and Support - Office of Rural Health
Service Description Within the Office of Rural Health, the Analytics & Innovations (AI) Team creates and improves performance measures through constructing study designs, research methodologies and statistical techniques that will further enhance healthcare research. The team’s focus is to inform community and policy makers of the story behind the data to help improve access and quality of healthcare. In rural North Carolina, residents die at an earlier age due to avoidable chronic disease and unintentional injury.  The AI Team works within and across teams, providing data to improve awareness and targeting ways to combat this challenge.  In addition, the AI team designs creative solutions to financing and delivering health care services for Medicaid, the uninsured and other vulnerable populations.  Leveraging existing infrastructure, including DHHS divisions, local communities, and academia, the AI team strengthens health delivery systems to improve access and coverage, enhance the quality and coordination of care, and contain unnecessary growth in healthcare expenditures.
