About Us

CHIR is made up of four committees, one governance board and one panel, which consists of a Data Committee, Clinical Care Committee, Finance Committee, Steering Council, and an Advisory Panel. Together, there are approximately 91 active members, ranging across all sectors including education, businesses, government, healthcare, and community services and support.

This broad representation of our community is what allows us to collect valuable insights and use this information to improve health care and help people live healthier, happier lives.

Our Mission

To discover the needs of the community and address those needs through data-driven strategies, improving health outcomes for everyone.
