FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New Name, New Website, New Impact
CAMBRIDGE, MA (February 6, 2014) - NEHI today announced that it is increasing its national outreach with a strategy that includes an expanded name and a redesigned website. Headquartered in Cambridge, MA and with offices in Washington, DC and San Francisco, CA, NEHI will now be known as NEHI: the Network for Excellence in Health Innovation.
The expanded name is a reflection of the national growth and impact of NEHI since its founding in 2002. NEHI now counts nearly 100 diverse health care organizations as members (its “Network”), it is a trusted source of unbiased, evidence-based research (its “Excellence”), and it is a thought leader for policy change (“Health Innovation”).
“The “Network for Excellence in Health Innovation” captures exactly who NEHI is and what it does,” said NEHI President Wendy Everett. “Our mission is to collaborate with our members from across the health care system in order to identify and promote innovations that improve the quality and lower the costs of health care.”
The expanded name and new website comes as NEHI strengthens its national membership and focuses its research on innovation in five areas of critical importance to national health care and health reform. NEHI’s research portfolio includes improving health care delivery, advancing technologies, reforming payment systems, ensuring the responsible use of medications, and promoting health and wellness.
NEHI’s new website, www.nehi.net, features improved navigation to access the health policy institute’s research, publications and events, and an expanded password-protected web portal for exclusive use by NEHI members across the country.
NEHI (Network for Excellence in Health Innovation) is a national health policy institute focused on enabling innovation to improve health care quality and lower health care costs. In partnership with members from all across the health care system, NEHI conducts evidence-based research and stimulates policy change to improve the quality and the value of health care.
