One Platform Offering Multiple Solutions
Improving Whole-Person Health and Well-Being Across All Communities and Populations
How and where we live, work, and learn has been shown to contribute as much, if not more, to our overall well-being than physical health. But even as the importance of Social Determinants (SDoH) is recognized, it is still quite difficult for service providers from the various care systems to connect and work together across behavioral, social services, and medical services.
Our mission-critical scenarios are as clear as they are heartbreaking: A young family battles food insecurity while living in a food desert. Lack of paratransit services force a disabled senior to “no-show” her last two medical appointments. And the epidemics of behavioral health issues like substance misuse, depression and untreated PTSD continue to haunt entire communities
The name ‘NinePatch’ is derived from quilting, and we feel it embodies our platform on multiple levels.
Most directly, NinePatch is a type of quilting pattern, which conveys the concept of many different elements coming together to form a greater whole. We feel this is a good description of our ‘Care Team’ model, as well as the coming together of the healthcare, behavioral, and social service organizations in the community.
On a more tactile level, we feel NinePatch also evokes warmth, comfort, and home, reflecting the importance of family and household in feelings of security and safety. That said, the piecemeal quality of quilts also reflects the truth of life being ‘messy’ – an ongoing work in progress.
Lastly, from a historical point of view, quilting has a long tradition in many North American and World cultures of being used as a means of familial and communal storytelling, creating bonds across generations. To us, this aspect of the craft is a constant reminder to be more active in improving health equity across all communities.
NinePatch is certainly more than just a name to us. It’s a reflection of our goals around Social Determinants and improving whole-person health and well-being across all communities and populations.

How NinePatch Works
NinePatch by QS Systems began in 2018 as a partnership between two pioneers and innovators in the world of health information technology and exchange networks: Stella Technology (Sane Hose, CA) and Quality Health Network (Grand Junction, CO).
- The current ‘Whole Person Care’/CIE mission is déjà vu to the team’s experiences durng the early days of building collaborative communities around the country.
- The QS team’s decades of expertise in interoperability include processing billions and billions of messages in virtually every format imaginable over more than a decade. World class expertise includes building and deploying over sixty-five HIEs across the globe.
- We feel this history lands us in a prime position to fully execute on the highly complex, yet incredibly important mission around addressing Social Determinants of Health.
