Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEXTM

Resources & Award Programs

The Chartis Rural Hospital Performance INDEX is the industry's most comprehensive and objective assessment of rural provider performance. Based entirely on publicly available data sets, the INDEX benchmarks performance across eight pillars of performance including quality, market share and patient perspectives. The INDEX framework is widely used across the nation by independent rural hospitals, health systems with rural footprints and state offices of rural health, which provide access to INDEX analytics through grant-funded initiatives. To learn more about the INDEX, please reach out to us at
