Serving Healthcare Systems and Medical Organizations

KINBER is a collaborative community of education, healthcare, economic development, libraries, government and public media organizations that utilizes the high-performance Pennsylvania Research and Education Network, also known as PennREN. By offering essential services and exceptional member support, KINBER will help your healthcare system achieve its mission and goals through the ongoing discovery, application and transfer of new network technologies essential for research, health information exchange and telemedicine.

By connecting organizations, building relationships and sharing services, healthcare institutions can achieve far more together than they can alone.
