Civitas Networks for Health Public Comments

Two leading national networks ready to create change. The Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement (NRHI) and Strategic Health Information Exchange Collaborative (SHIEC) joined forces to form Civitas Networks for Health in October 2021. Today, Civitas’ health improvement collaboratives, which include health information exchanges (HIEs) and regional health improvement collaboratives (RHICs), are bringing together health care providers, purchasers, payers and patients to advance data-driven progress. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, community leaders have rallied to address the unique health and health care needs of their neighbors. Civitas stands with and champions these local health care innovators – amplifying their voices at the national level and supporting the exchange of resources and ideas among their programs.
