The Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement (NRHI) is a network of 35 Regional Health Improvement Collaboratives (RHICs) throughout the country. RHICs have been working for years in their communities to advance alternative payment models by adopting a multi-stakeholder, multi-payer approach.
NHRI makes the following commitments in support of APM adoption:
NRHI supports and elevates its national network of regional collaboratives through its events and initiatives. For example, NRHI convenes local leaders – employers, providers, patients, and plans – to collectively identify and address barriers to moving from volume to value. Specifically, NRHI has hosted three National Payment Reform Summits over the years, resulting in concrete recommendations from multi-stakeholder participants. In partnerships with seven RHICs, NRHI has been helping to advance measurement and reporting of total cost of care (TCoC) at the practical level – a critical milestone for achieving population-based or global payments. As such, NRHI’s priorities and initiatives are consistent with the direction of the LAN and APMs.
