 In January 2016 AcademyHealth's Community Health Peer Learning (CHP) Program in partnership with the Office of the National Coordinator, awarded 15 communities with grants to work towards improving community health through the expanded collection, exchange, and use of health data.

This Community Profile outlines the efforts of the North Coast Health Improvement and Information Network (NCHIIN), who worked to reduce emergency department (ED) utilization by the indigent, high-need,             super-utilizer population by 15 percent over the course of their participation in the CHP program. They worked to build an interface between the DHHS-SS Homeless Management Information System and North Coast’s health information exchange to share data from electronic health records, and public and private records.
