Our Mission

The Mission of the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement is to improve health and healthcare in communities across the U.S. through the active and engaged network of our member Regional Health Improvement Collaboratives.

Regional Health Improvement Collaborative

The Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement (NRHI) is a national organization representing over 30 member Regional Health Improvement Collaboratives (RHICs). These multi-stakeholder organizations are working in their regions and collaborating across regions to transform the healthcare delivery system and achieve the Triple Aim: improving the patient experience of care, including quality and satisfaction; improving the health of populations; and reducing the per-capita cost of health care. The RHICs are accomplishing this transformation by working directly with physicians and other healthcare providers, provider organizations, commercial and government payers, employers, consumers, and other healthcare related organizations. Both NRHI and its members are non-profit, non-governmental organizations.
