How do we choose a RHIO that is right for us?
Choosing a RHIO involves a number of considerations. Health centers should assess their environment and infrastructure to determine the type of RHIO that will be most appropriate. Since RHIOs are at various stages of development, each will offer different opportunities.
Overall, prior to making any commitment to join or start a RHIO, it is important to assess institutional readiness to engage with others collaboratively. Understanding the purpose and vision for joining and collaborating in a RHIO will provide a more robust experience. In particular, when considering joining a RHIO, there are specific readiness issues that should be considered.
