The North Dakota and NORC Rural Health Reform Policy Research Center (RHRPRC) is a consortium that combines the resources of two premier institutions:

RHRPRC measures and projects the impact of health reform policies on rural and frontier communities. The center develops strategies for policy makers and rural providers in leveraging health reform to improve access to healthcare services and the overall health status of rural residents.

Research conducted by the RHRPRC informs policy makers and rural providers to:

  • Increase access to healthcare services
  • Improve overall health status of rural residents
  • Assist rural communities in securing adequate, affordable, high-quality healthcare services

The Center for Rural Health is the lead organization for the RHRPRC, working with its partner NORC Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis. The RHRPRC was funded in September 2012. The RHRPRC's Expert Work Group provides input for the center on research activities.
