One of the many benefits of NRHI membership is the opportunity to leverage the collective experience, challenges and innovation of RHICs who are engaging in similar opportunities to drive healthcare improvement in communities.  The Qualified Entity Collaborative provides a forum for NRHI members who are already Certified Qualified Entities, as well as those interested in exploring the designation,  to support each other through sharing of best practices, increasing alignment for greater efficiency and cost savings, and collectively find solutions to overcome barriers.  The NRHI staff will facilitate this collaboration through meetings (both internal and with key external stakeholders), on-line forums and a resource library.  Additional roles for NRHI will be determined as the work evolves and needs are identified.  You may find the following materials useful and please don’t hesitate to reach out to either Elizabeth Mitchell or Ellen Gagnon  with any questions or ideas.
