20 years of impact | Colorado Institute of Health

Building on the past to design our future

As the Colorado Health Institute celebrates a milestone anniversary in 2022, we reflect on our impact over the past two decades and are grateful for the investments Colorado’s health policy community has made with us.

The timeline below presents highlights of CHI’s history, beginning with our founding by forward-thinking organizations that saw the need for an independent health research institute. Year after year, CHI has grown from a small center for data and analytics, to an incubator of important organizations such as Connect for Health Colorado, to a strategic consultant and organizer of innovative efforts to improve health and health. health equity.

In 2021, CHI focused on responding to the impacts of the pandemic, on the social determinants of health and on providing research, analysis and information to drive work on health and equity in health across the state.

Going forward, we are leveraging lessons learned to achieve our mission to improve the health of all Coloradans by integrating systems of care, supporting behavioral health, and adapting to climate change. We are invigorated by this work and the possibilities that our third decade holds.

We look forward to building on 20 years of expertise and our trusted partnership with the Colorado healthcare community as we devise new ways to improve the health and lives of the people of our state.
