NEHI (Network for Excellence in Health Innovation) is dedicated to identifying innovations that improve the quality and lower the costs of health care. NEHI’s network of nearly 100 health care organizations is a hotbed for consensus solutions that cut across traditional silos and drive policy change. Only with all stakeholders at the table is fixing health care possible.
