About

While an important characteristic of Community Health Centers is their strong individual community identification and governance, they are subject to the same forces that have driven the development of large health care systems. Recognizing the opportunities for groups of safety net organizations who could choose to cooperate rather than compete, the Bureau of Primary Health Care established the Integrated Service Networks Initiative (ISDI) in 1994. The Alliance was founded to realize this strategy.

The mission of the Alliance is to share resources and integrate services in order to more efficiently and effectively deliver accessible quality health care to the communities we serve.

The Alliance’s strategic vision is to continue promoting the thoughtful use of Health Information Technology (HIT) in the Safety Net to promote access, improve quality, and efficiency.

Efforts are now focused in 4 areas:

Development of the Hosted Electronic Health Record System (EHRS) user community
Continued Health Information Technology Innovation
Research and data use, including Performance Improvement
Support of HIT adoption and use through education and technical assistance
