 Welcome to NCHN

The National Cooperative of Health Networks Association (NCHN) is a national professional membership organization comprised exclusively of health networks, alliances, and/or  consortiums dedicated to supporting the success of health networks.

NCHN is a not-for-profit national membership organization, which is governed by its members through an elected Board of Directors. Founded in the late 1980s, NCHN was incorporated in 1995. NCHN is a dynamic, progressive, and nationally recognized professional organization that is relevant for health networks regardless of their stage of development.

Access TeleCare is proud to partner with the National Cooperative of Health Networks Association to transform the way healthcare is delivered to NHCN member hospitals. Access TeleCare can help solve the problem of limited access to quality physicians nationwide through a unique clinical telemedicine platform. Similarly, Access TeleCare can assist in improving the viability of member hospitals by improving their bottom lines.
Through Access TeleCare telemedicine programs, organizations can realize significant cost reductions while boosting revenue. With Access TeleCare, each hospital will be able to manage higher acuity patients, resulting in increasing both case mix index (CMI) and average daily census (ADC). Improving these variables drives favorable financial results. Thus, Access TeleCare feels it can deliver meaningful improvements in clinical and financial outcomes to NCHN member health systems.
Although we have broad capabilities, our main specialties include: 


  • Tele-Cardiology
  • Tele-Neurology
  • Tele-Pulmonary / Critical Care
  • Tele-Hospitalist
  • Tele-Infectious Disease
  • Tele-Maternal Fetal Medicine
  • Tele-Code Blue
  • Tele-Nephrology
  • Tele-Psychiatry
