Testimonials

“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.”

“Since the early ’90s, NCHICA has brought together a unique community of stakeholders across the industry and has, with great vision, identified and addressed significant problems in all aspects of health care. NCHICA has not only been a leader across North Carolina, but has contributed (and continues to contribute) to the nation at large. The many activities, projects, and work groups make NCHICA one of my highest priority groups with which to engage. Join me.”
Ed Hammond, PhD, Director, Duke Center for Health Informatics

“Our healthcare system and nation would benefit if health IT leaders in more states leaned in to develop and foster the same kind of collaboration as North Carolina has with NCHICA. It’s unique and effective. We’re proud to support its efforts as members.”

NCHIMA values our long-standing partnership with NCHICA.

Membership in NCHICA provides a great way to learn what is going on in your community and in neighboring communities. You can roll up your sleeves with folks who are interested in similar topics and make real progress on projects that are sitting on your desk demanding your attention. Sometimes education can be a distraction from your work day. I think NCHICA is a very practical, pragmatic way to take problems you’re currently working on and make progress on them.”
Chris Jones, DrPH, Program Director, Northwest AHEC

“NCHICA is a phenomenon of sorts. I have been all over the country and I don’t know of another state that has as many active members in a group like this.”
Wendy Elmore, BSN, MBA, SSGB, Executive Healthcare Consultant, TM Floyd & Company
