Benefits of ROK-Net

Involvement with a group of rural peers to share challenges and best practices

  • Opportunities to collaborate with and lend expertise to health innovation researchers
  • Connections with quality improvement specialists to accelerate insights into practice
  • Invitations to attend ROK-Net meetings
  • Access to ROK-Net resources identified and developed through membership feedback
  • Close relationship with the OSU CHSI.


Membership participation 
Ultimately, there are many ways ROK-Net members can engage with the network and fellow members. Three primary means of participation include identifying salient challenges, developing solutions and testing innovations. Members will dedicate themselves to solving intricate problems and devote time for network activities.


Advising Members are clinicians who are unable to participate as active members due to circumstances such as retirement or practicing in non-rural areas, yet would like to devote time and consultation for events and strategic planning. The expectations of these members are the same as the above, with the exception of engaging their clinical practice in ROK-Net activities.
