NHIT Collaborative believes that there is a good business case for private sector investment and financial support for health information technology (HIT) projects and programs in underserved communities.
NHIT also believes it is in the nation’s interest to ensure the availability of private and public resources, on a sustained basis, to maximize HIT adoption in underserved communities, communities of color, and among those who care for them. HIT-related financial resources promote entrepreneurship and community economic development to the greatest extent possible.
With valuable contributions from the Finance and Sustainability Workgroup, we will suggest tools to support communities in accessing and acquiring public and private funds. Community leaders seeking funds can find useful resources that will help them contact potential funders/investors and discuss the business aspects of the investment in solid financial terms.
