What is the Texas e-Health Alliance?

TeHA is a bipartisan, nonprofit organization committed to being our state’s leading advocate, from local communities to the national level, for the use of information technology to improve the health care system for patients.   We are:

  • A credible industry voice within our state, with a track record of positively impacting public policy.   

  • A forum- and a podium- for our members to contribute their individual voice to the broader conversation about HIT and health care.

  • A guide and a resource when our members are faced with regulatory uncertainty or a lack of information about the state’s HIT marketplace.

  • An active force in that marketplace- one that’s not just reporting the story but actually influencing the state’s policy framework and decision making process.
