NHIT Care Campaign™


The NHIT Care Campaign™ – Responding to a Dire Public Health Challenge in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.


NHIT Care Campaign Mission

The National Health IT Collaborative for the Underserved (NHIT), with guidance from supporting partners, launched the Care Campaign with the mission of restoring the health safety net for people of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.


Key Post-Hurricane Recovery Focus Areas 

Both patient-centered systems of care and technical aspects of health-related infrastructure are critical enablers for post-hurricane recovery in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands . Our Campaign focuses on three primary domains: 

  • Clinical & Community Systems of Care 
  • Essential Health-Related Infrastructure
  • HIT & HIE 


Primary Campaign Objective 

Our goal for this initial phase of the campaign is to provide a high-level implementation plan across the near-, mid-, and long-term as a roadmap for implementation of a future-proof, disaster resilient health ecosystem. Through modern Agile portfolio management practices, NHIT® will integrate policy and delivery of Health System solutions to drive successful delivery and adoption.
