CommunityHealth IT (CommHIT), a 501(c)(6) at the Kennedy Space Center, has a network of community mental health facilities, federally qualified health centers (FQHCs), rural and community hospitals, and rural health clinics (RHCs) primarily located in several rural and underserved Florida areas. Medical sites are in the following counties Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Citrus, Columbia, Miami-Dade, DeSoto, Dixie, Duval, Escambia, Gadsden, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Hernando, Hillsborough, Lafayette, Lake, Levy, Marion, Putnam, Sumter, Suwannee, and Union. CommHIT’s primary role is assisting these facilities to recoup funds from the Federal Communications Commission for their broadband expenses, receive funds and resources for needed telehealth services, safely and effectively adopt health information technologies, and participate in clinical research—particularly patient-centered research. CommHIT works very closely with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Information Sharing and Analysis Organizations and Centers (ISAOs/ISACs), and Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) worldwide to reduce the risk of a data breach and improve our network’s cybersecurity and privacy postures.
