The NHIT Collaborative believes that by advocating for enlightened public policy and building the political will, health information technology (HIT) can become a reality in underserved communities. HIT has the power to transform the delivery and improve the quality of health for the underserved and communities of color.
NHIT with valuable contributions from the Policy Workgroup will identify, track, and report on innovative federal, state, and local policies relevant to the impact of HIT on the needs of underserved populations, communities of color, and those who care for them. We also believe it is important to educate and empower all stakeholders by making them aware of key government decision-makers, and guiding them through the legislative process.
We encourage you to join us in advocating for the policy changes that can support the implementation of HIT for the underserved.
