NC Consumer Advisory Council on Health Information

Mission Statement

NC CACHI is a grassroots consumer organization formed in 2006 by NCHICA. NC CACHI is comprised of members from various backgrounds and demographics including gender, race, ethnicity, education and age. Its mission is to inform consumers and policy makers about consumer rights, risks and benefits related to electronic health records, personal health records and health information exchange by:

  • Obtaining consumer feedback to influence the development of state, national and organizational laws, regulations and policies.
  • Providing input on privacy, security and patient consent issues.
  • Working with regional, state and national consumer support groups to share ideas and develop consistent, current consumer messages.
  • Fostering consumer awareness and engagement through educational materials, speakers and forums.

NC CACHI members are drawn from across the state and they are dedicated to the vision of empowering consumers in understanding and managing their personal health information.

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.
