Is Your Practice Ready For Centering?

Let's Start the Conversation

We are delighted that you are considering the Centering model of group care for your clinical practice. You may have a lot of questions about getting started and what you’ll need to successfully implement Centering. Keep reading below and watch this video to learn more.

The Readiness Assessment is the first step to initiating your relationship with CHI and beginning your implementation journey. It helps to identify some key characteristics of your clinical practice that may determine if Centering is right for you. Once you have completed and submitted the Readiness Assessment your Practice Services Manager will contact you to schedule a telephone conversation to review your responses and further discuss what Centering may look like in your clinical setting.

Please complete the Readiness Assessment to the best of your ability. We recognize that it may be challenging to have all of this information available, and we encourage you to provide your best estimates so we are able to start our conversation. Completing the Readiness Assessment (RA) will take approximately 15 – 20 minutes and it will be helpful to have this preliminary information collected before you get started:

  • The address of the intended Centering location. Because each location will have unique characteristics, we ask you to complete a separate RA for each location where Centering will occur
  • Your vision for how Centering will benefit your practice
  • Your past experience with Centering
  • Information on your OB or Pediatric patient volume (e.g. number of new OBs seen, number of newborns seen)
  • Number of providers who will engage with Centering and their role/credentials
  • Information about potential group space (size estimate, availability of space for Centering groups)
  • Administrative support
  • Ethnicity and insurance mix of clinical patient population (optional)

Thank you for your interest. We are looking forward to taking these next steps with you!
