National Rural HIT Coalition
The National Rural Health Information Technology (HIT) Coalition is an informal network of rural and HIT leaders from organizations at every level, working together to drive knowledge and information about rural HIT throughout the country.
The purpose of the Rural HIT Coalition is to:
- Educate key rural health stakeholders including state Flex Programs, and state offices of rural health about rural HIT issues and resources.
- Provide a forum for discussion of issues relevant to critical access hospitals, rural health clinics, and other rural health providers and communities.
- Convene federal, national, and state organizations and agencies to share rural successes, opportunities, and perspectives.
The National Rural HIT Coalition is supported by the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) and coordinated by the Technical Assistance and Services Center (TASC), a program of the National Rural Health Resource Center.
