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 of more than thirty-five member regional health improvement collaboratives (RHICs) across the United States. These multi-stakeholder organizations are working in their regions and collaborating across regions to transform the healthcare delivery system to improve the patient experience of care, including quality and satisfaction; improve the health of populations; and reduce the per-capita cost of healthcare.



What is NRHI?

As MACRA implementation moves forward, we remain committed to providing the most relevant, most comprehensive – and above all else, most objective information available on the Law, the Rules, and their effects on healthcare stakeholders and the broader healthcare community.
