Delta Region Rural Hospital Workforce Training Program

Administered by the Health Resources and Services Administration, the Delta Region Rural Health Workforce Training Program is designed to improve healthcare delivery in rural areas by training future and current health professionals for high-quality, good-paying jobs in the rural counties and parishes of the DRA region. 

The program invests in training for the following critical administrative support professions:

  • Medical coding and billing
  • Insurance claims processing
  • Health information management
  • Clinical documentation
  • Business operations for healthcare organizations
  • Supply chain and materials management

These skilled administrative support professionals are key to increasing hospital revenues, thereby improving a hospital’s financial viability and thus its ability to improve health care in the rural areas it serves.
