The National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions (National Alliance) is a non-profit 501(c)6 located in Washington, DC. Over the past 24 years, our organization has provided expertise, resources and leadership for about 50 purchaser-led coalition members across the US. The coalitions represent 12,000 healthcare purchasers providing health coverage to over 45 million Americans. Purchasers range from small and mid-sized companies to very large organizations (with over 5,000 employees). This puts the National Alliance in a unique position to objectively lead unparalleled collaboration and innovation in the current changing healthcare marketplace.

NRHI represents more than 30 regional health improvement collaboratives (RHICs) and state-affiliated partners, all working toward the goals of better health, better care, and lower costs.

NRHI and its members/RHICs, utilizing their practical experience and lessons learned implementing changes on the ground, also work with federal agencies, national foundations, and national stakeholder groups to transform health care delivery, payment, and information systems to reflect local experience. NRHI and RHICs’ current priorities:

  1. Increase transparency and enable better access to all-payer claims and clinical data to enable communities to measure and report healthcare quality and cost
  2. Coordinate federal programs to best reflect and leverage local innovatio
