Join a unique, neutral forum that represents the interests of the many sectors of the healthcare community

NCHICA members represent: hospitals and clinics; medical practices; professional societies and nonprofit associations; national, state and local health agencies; health plans; law firms; healthcare and IT consulting firms/vendors; health education and training providers; and research organizations. There are few organizations in the country that bring together such diverse members of the healthcare community.

Become a part of a nationally recognized, credible organization

NCHICA’s involvement in the Nationwide Health Information Network (NwHIN) and the Health Information Security & Privacy Collaboration (HISPC) projects, along with its exemplary work on the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), have made it a national resource for health information exchange and HIPAA compliance information.

Address common problems and work toward solutions

Why work alone or “re-invent the wheel” when you can work with your peers? NCHICA provides a unique opportunity for members to meet on a regular basis with others who do the same job and share the same day-to-day concerns. The Privacy & Security Officials Workgroup, the Transactions, Code Sets & Identifiers Workgroup, and the CIO Roundtable are just a few examples of active workgroups.

Make a difference and drive change in the healthcare industry

NCHICA’s committees, workgroups and task forces are involved in numerous activities to accelerate the adoption of information technology and enabling policies.

Network with your peers and gain professional development

Only employees of NCHICA member organizations can participate in NCHICA’s committees, task forces and workgroups. Meetings are free and provide excellent opportunities to network with peers and grow professionally.

NCHICA has created a collaborative organization that no other State has achieved. It includes vendors, providers, payers, physicians, nurses, clinicians, attorneys, information technologists and other professionals, working together to improve healthcare within North Carolina in every way, from the use of technology, to public policy considerations, to patient privacy, and more. Belonging to, and participating in, this organization helps you to not only keep up with the changing healthcare environment, but to have some influence on those changes.
