National HIT Collaborative for the Underserved: A Public
Private Partnership for a Healthier America
The National Health IT Collaborative for the Underserved envisions an interconnected public and private health system where all consumers have access to high quality, affordable care and to the information and technology resources required to maximize their access and effective use of health care services.
The purpose of the Collaborative is to convene, study, experiment and propose solutions to help reduce and ultimately eliminate health disparities experienced by medically underserved areas and populations through the use of advances in health IT. We will incorporate a wealth of experience in both the public and private sectors to assess and propose new ideas to improve the health of those communities and populations that have historically had the worst health outcomes and the least access to care.
The Institute for e-Health Policy is proud to be an original convener of this nationally recognized initiative and working with other key stakeholders. Executive Director Neal Neuberger serves on the Management Committee for the Collaborative with support from the Institute’s first Executive-in-Residence, Dennis R. Porter, and Dan Blum. Dave Roberts serves as Chair of the Advocacy and Policy Work Group.
