Collaborative Health Network

What is the Collaborative Health Network?

The Collaborative Health Network provides trusted peer-to-peer forums and programming to support “HealthDoers” working to improve community health and healthcare. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation selected the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement to launch this initiative to ensure that a broader network of individuals and organizations learn about and apply the multi-stakeholder approach. The online and in-person offerings of the Collaborative Health Network are designed to rapidly identify and spread what works, foster meaningful connections, and incorporate participant feedback to set priorities. Join the Collaborative Health Network by visiting and follow #healthdoers on twitter.
