WHAT IS A CHIR?
Community Health Innovation Regions, or CHIRs, represent a unique, coordinated approach to improving conditions where people live, work, learn, and play. CHIRs bring a broad group of stakeholders together to improve the wellbeing of the residents in their community, in particular, by addressing factors that affect a person’s health. These partners use systems change to ensure that people’s needs are met in and outside of the doctor’s office.
