NEHII Shared Services

Furthering the health of all Nebraskans through health data sciences, quality improvement and population health focused research opportunities.

About the CyncHealth Foundation

The Foundation is a 501c3 organization aimed at funding a number of initiatives across the healthcare ecosystem focused on data science and utilizing the data repository CyncHealth has accumulated since its inception. Funds are made possible through philanthropic partners who invest in our mission to help make meaningful enhancements in data sciences and population health programs in order to support the health of all Nebraskans.

The Foundation supports programs aligned with The Nebraska Healthcare Collaborative and CyncHealth, including:

Population health endowed chairs

This program provides support for faculty positions for active, effective research scientists who will advance basic scientific research in health data sciences for the advancement of population health in Nebraska.

Endowed work study programs

As a Population Health Science Scholar, clinicians will gain the methodological skill, institutional savvy, and social capital to bridge the gap between ivory tower research and real-world healthcare delivery systems.

Endowed provider education funds

This fund focuses on education programming that aims to improve patient experience, population health and care team well-being, while reducing costs – the quadruple aim.

Support the health of all Nebraskans

Funding to initiate the Foundation stems from WellCare of Nebraska and the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. This entity under the CyncHealth Enterprise is designed to contribute to the education, research and translation of knowledge to clinical practice in the fields of health data science—which is all made possible by the generosity of our philanthropic partners.
