What is the HealthDoers Network?

The HealthDoers Network (formerly 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 HealthDoers Network are designed to rapidly identify and spread what works, foster meaningful connections, and incorporate participant feedback to set priorities. Join the HealthDoers Network by visiting and follow #healthdoers on twitter.

The HealthDoers Series highlights local leaders, rising stars and organizations who are actively doing the work to accelerate local health improvement.

Each month, the HealthDoers Series will feature virtual events following a dedicated theme identified as relevant and important to users of the network. Topics range from community health, patient and consumer engagement to health care data, transparency and policy. These events have been made possible by the support of the California Health Care Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
