Become a NAHDO Member

The National Association of Health Data Organizations (NAHDO) is a not-for-profit national membership organization dedicated to improving health care through the collection, analysis, dissemination, public availability, and use of health data.

NAHDO is the only organization of its kind bringing together members of the public (Federal, state, and local) and the private sectors of the health information industry to foster cooperation for the development of effective mechanisms to address complex health care issues.

The APCD Council is convened and coordinated by NAHDO and the Institute for Health Policy and Practice (IHPP) at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) and is supported in part, through a combination of NAHDO membership and the support of our corporate partners.

NAHDO welcomes various classes of organizations as members:

Public Members - Public members include state agencies and other health data organizations created by legislative or other governmental act that collect and analyze health care data on a statewide or other jurisdictional basis. (This is interpreted to include federal agencies.)

Health Care Associations - Health Care Association members consist of any health care provider, provider association (physician or hospital, etc.) whose primary business is the delivery of health care services to patients or whose association is to represent a group of providers that deliver health care services, and/or organizations which collect/analyze and distribute health care data with primary focus on providers of health care, who are not otherwise eligible for Public membership.

Corporate/Vendor - Corporate and Vendor members shall consist of any organization which  sells health care data-related products and services.

Corporate Partnerships

NAHDO believes in the power of partnerships and collaborative efforts. Along with sustaining membership, corporate partnerships advance NAHDO's mission and priorities, and are essential for NAHDO members' health data organizations that need data tools and services to be responsive to their key stakeholders.
