Collaborative Partnership

The National Health IT Collaborative for the Underserved (NHIT) was established in June 2008 as a community of public/private partners committed to leveraging advances in health information technology (HIT) to reduce and ultimately eliminate health disparities experienced by underserved populations, with an emphasis on communities of color.  NHIT supports the full engagement of HIT in underserved populations, and among those who care for them, thus ensuring that no community will be left behind.  Our public/private partnerships include the Office of Minority Health, Association for Clinicians for the Underserved, HIMSS Foundation Institute for eHealth Policy, eHealth Initiative Foundation, Summit Health Institute for Research and Education, and the Health Policy Institute Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies.  The Collaborative’s focus includes HIT planning, adoption and utilization; education and outreach; workforce development and training; policy development and implementation; finance and sustainability; and research and evaluation.
