About Centering® Healthcare Institute

Centering Healthcare Institute’s mission is to improve population health by transforming primary care delivery through Centering® groups. CHI is the national standards and accrediting organization for the Centering Healthcare model. We consult to healthcare practices seeking to implement the model; we train the clinical teams that will use the model and offer them a certification pathway for skills maintenance; we maintain a quality assurance program to ensure that practices remain true to the model; we provide practice management tools, curriculum materials, technical assistance and convene communities-ofpractice to support sustainability and model fidelity; and we advocate for payment system reforms that reward providers for adopting innovative and evidence-based care models shown to improve health outcomes and reduce costs of care.

About Centering®

CenteringHealthcare is an evidence-based patient-centered group care model that meets the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s Quadruple Aim goals of better population health, better patient experience of care, lower per capita healthcare costs, and higher provider job satisfaction. Ten years of research involving the CenteringPregnancy® prenatal care model has consistently shown significant reductions in preterm birth rates, rates of low birth weight, NICU admissions, and racial birth outcomes disparities. Over 500 practices across the U.S. are using the Centering model to improve the health of their patients.
