The Centering® Healthcare Institute (CHI) is on the front lines of transforming healthcare delivery and increasing the opportunities that people have to thrive. With over two decades of experience working closely with healthcare providers from all sectors, we’ve developed the Centering group care model. Our team provides implementation support to guide healthcare practices through every step of the system redesign and to build a foundation for a successful, sustainable practice. We have developed curricula and patient materials, and our facilitation training offers a variety of skill-building and interactive learning activities that prepare facilitators to lead engaging groups. We offer practice management and support tools, and site accreditation for model fidelity and quality assurance. We are engaged in advocacy efforts for payment reform and community outreach to achieve the Quadruple Aim of better health, better care, lower cost and provider satisfaction. Leadership and collaboration are at the heart of our success.
Centering® is an innovative, evidence-based model of group care that brings patients out of the exam room and into a comfortable group setting. Clinicians see a group of 6-12 patients with similar health conditions who receive the highest quality of care and, as part of an ongoing group, form a supportive community where they gain knowledge, skills and confidence. The Centering model utilizes a facilitative process that incorporates health assessment, interactive learning and community building to help support positive health behaviors and drive better health outcomes. With over two decades of experience working closely with healthcare providers from all sectors, CHI has developed and sustained the Centering group care model in more than 500 practice sites in the U.S.
