Unite Nebraska is a community data exchange of health and social service providers, sponsored by CyncHealth. Partners in the network are connected through Unite Us’ shared technology platform, 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. The network is supported by a Nebraska-based Unite Us team focused on community engagement, network health and optimization, and customer success.
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.
Joining the network is at no cost for community-based organizations and many organizations that are considered part of the safety net, like community health centers, tribal clinics, and mental health centers.
