Unite Nebraska is a Community Information Exchange (CIE) of health and social care providers, sponsored by CyncHealth. Partners in the CIE are connected through a shared technology platform, Unite Us, which enables them to send and receive electronic referrals, address people’s social needs, and improve health across communities. The Nebraska 211 Contact Center team, acting as the Coordination Center for Unite Nebraska, processes and facilitates network referrals, ensuring clients are connected to the best program to address their needs.
Organizations offering billable services will enter into a participation agreement to data-share with the health information exchange platform before joining the network. There may be a cost associated with data-sharing, but no additional charges to join Unite Nebraska. The platform is free for community-based organizations.
Unite Nebraska is currently serving Cass, Colfax, Dodge, Douglas, Lancaster, Otoe, Sarpy, Saunders, Seward, Washington, Adams, Buffalo, Butler, Custer, Dawson, Hall, Hamilton, Howard, Kearney, Lincoln, Merrick, Phelps, Platte, Polk, Sherman, and York counties.
Unite Nebraska is part of a groundbreaking multi-state initiative, including Unite Iowa, Unite South Dakota, and four other states, sponsored by CyncHealth. This work ensures that communities and individuals can seamlessly access much-needed resources and services, such as food, employment, transportation, and housing, through collaboration with local community-based organizations.
CyncHealth is proud to launch Unite Nebraska. This groundbreaking platform transforms the way health care and community providers work together, seamlessly connecting a statewide network of partners while keeping the individual at the center of care — making healthier lives possible for Nebraskans.”
