Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative Seeks Coordinator for Health Activist Network


The Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative (PRHI)—a non-profit operating arm of the Jewish Healthcare Foundation—is building a Health Activist Network platform to connect like-minded physicians and other health professionals who are committed to advancing health reform, patient safety, and quality. There are many health professionals committed to reform in the U.S. (and even beyond). But they are scattered about the nation in various communities of like-minded peers, and often, their formal associations lag behind in advancing progressive change.


The Health Activist Network will knit together these groups through an online knowledge management platform, Tomorrow’s HealthCare™. Tomorrow’s HealthCare™ facilitates communication, engagement, collaboration, learning, and concerted action among health professionals in communities of interest. With a vehicle for a unified voice and concerted action, the like-minded health professionals could make substantive changes in quality and safety at the frontline of care and address the policy and educational barriers that inhibit these improvements.
