Centering Healthcare Institute
What if well-child visits included learning and connection?
When we expand the healthcare visit to include parental learning and connection, we can have a profound impact on health outcomes and increase the chances each family has to thrive.
Centering Healthcare Institute is transforming healthcare delivery and outcomes for all families, beginning with pregnancy and early childhood, by expanding access to our evidence-based framework for billable group medical visits. Each two-hour group visit includes a 1:1 assessment with the provider and time for facilitated discussions and learning with a cohort of others going through similar things at the same time. Centering reduces social isolation and creates a community of support for parents and caregivers, empowering them with knowledge, skills and confidence.
Centering is the billable primary care visit, not an additional program or class, and is an effective, scalable intervention. With over two decades of experience, CHI has pioneered and sustained the Centering model of group care currently offered in 600 healthcare practice sites impacting 70,000 families each year.
