See video testimonials from two NCHICA Board members:
"As a practicing physician I am constantly challenged to keep up with HIT changes that can have a significant impact on patient care. NCHICA provides me with a trusted source of information, as well as a trusted partner in the pursuit of more efficient, more innovative and more secure HIT."
"The recording, processing and distribution of healthcare information are pivotal functions in creating the healthcare system of the future. NCHICA stands at the
frontier in North Carolina with knowledge and experience to facilitate a smooth transition that will take medical care from a cottage industry to an integrated network of optimally
functioning providers. NCHICA can help us avoid mistakes that are not only costly but also demoralizing."
"Membership in NCHICA has allowed me to stay informed about the rapidly changing trends in health information technology. Whether it is from news and information
coming directly from NCHICA or from personal contacts made through the organization, I am able to anticipate changes that will affect the care of my patients. I would recommend membership
to any provider or provider organization that is concerned about how HIT/HIE will impact patient care."
"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."
"Participation by the NC Department of Health and Human Services in NCHICA has benefited the citizens of NC by influencing the direction and adoption of critical
health information systems. Health IT is rapidly evolving and the success of any organization will depend on how well we stay abreast of these changes. NCHICA has the credibility
and the objectivity to bring the right people to the table around the important and timely topics to advance health IT."
"Through NCHICA membership, I've not only enjoyed the benefits of unique professional growth opportunities and the development of valuable relationships with other
state and national provider, payer and vendor representatives, I've helped to shape the future of health care. NCHICA's stellar reputation among policy makers, coupled with its collaborative
approach to finding practical solutions, makes it an unparalleled forum through which to advance ideas to transform our health care system in a positive way. I'm proud to be a member
and excited about the future it is helping to create."
"NCHICA membership is beneficial to NCAP. Information technology plays an increasingly important role in health care. Our membership in NCHICA allows us to contribute
the pharmacist's perspective to the integration of information technology in health care."
"Collaboration with NCHICA has made it possible for the North Carolina AHEC program to deliver excellent and timely education to the healthcare community in preparation
to amaze me with its people and its commitment.
"NCHICA, through its collaborative efforts, provides Privacy and Security Officials with an effective venue to review healthcare regulations and openly discuss potential implementation strategies. These strategies have resulted in a framework that participating organizations can use to understand and comply with federal and state regulations."
