Consumer Health Collaborative of New York State

Description and Mission

The Consumer Health Collaborative of New York (CHCNY) brings together a broad range of healthcare professionals and agencies working with and for consumers of healthcare in New York State.

CHCNY offers its members access to organizations with common goals in order to facilitate grass roots initiatives in support of patient-centered care.

IPRO is most fortunate to have Carol Rodat, New York Director of Policy of the Paraprofessional Healthcare Institute, to serve as Chairwoman of the Collaborative. Her knowledge of New York State healthcare concerns and issues supports and guides the membership in accomplishing all goals and activities.
