WHO WE ARE
Member-driven, NEHI represents organizations from across all healthcare sectors working to advance the adoption of health innovation in diagnostics, therapies, operations, and payment models.
Unbiased, non-profit, and analytic, NEHI explores and solves today's complex problems, leveraging innovations to address unmet needs and improve equitable access to health.
We started NEHI with collaboration in mind
NEHI was founded in 2002 as the New England Healthcare Institute by Henri Termeer (then CEO of Genzyme), Harris Berman (then CEO of Tufts Health Plan), Charlie Baker (then CEO Of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care), along with other influential health care leaders to enable direct conversations between payers and pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to identify, debate and seek solutions to common health care issues – and then create policy change.
Today, we maintain that mission, although we have expanded the dialogue to include constituents from across the health care system. We are committed to driving better health outcomes and value in health care through interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation. We have also increased our focus in three areas: healthcare value and payment innovations, equitable access to innovation, and expanding access to mental health care.
