Colorado Health Institute

CHI believes that good health policy leads to a healthier Colorado. Every day we bring research, insight, and expertise to leaders across the state because informed decisions lead to better health for all. The Colorado Health Institute was founded in 2002 to fill a need for nonpartisan, independent data and evidence-based analysis to support decision-makers. As Colorado’s health policy landscape has changed, CHI has grown to meet the challenge. Today, we provide not just analysis and data, but strategic planning, facilitation, complex modeling, evaluation, and strategic communication. We serve as a trusted and independent source of the information, analysis, and expertise that lead to sound health policy decisions. By doing so, we improve the health of all Coloradans. Our clients are state agencies, philanthropies, health systems, and community partners, and our work embodies both health and health-adjacent fields, such as early childhood education research. Meanwhile, we continue to be supported by philanthropic organizations who share our mission of advancing health and health equity through mission-driven community benefit work. Our Mission and Vision We improve the health of all Coloradans through independent research, analysis, and insight that advance sound policies and decisions.
