Welcome to the Citizens Health Initiative

Working for a health and health care system with better health, better care, and lower costs for all New Hampshire residents.

Our long-term goal is to create and sustain a public dialogue that will measurably improve the “systems” that finance and provide health care in New Hampshire in order to accomplish two fundamental objectives: to assure a healthy population and to create an effective system of care.

Latest projects:

Rural Health Clinic Technical Assistance Network (with NH Community Health Institute). The NH Citizens Health Initiative is pleased to be working with the NH Community Health Institute, under contract with the NH Division of Public Health Services, to develop and support a Technical Assistance Network for NH Rural Health Clinics. The network will equip Rural Health Clinics with the tools and resources necessary to effectively and efficiently serve their rural populations.  The NH RHC Technical Assistance Network will provide support for NH RHCs specific technical assistance needs relative to practice management, RHC recertification, financial reporting, billing, data collection and reporting, and quality improvement. The network will also provide support for an RHC Hypertension Learning Collaborative, including clinical quality management reporting and quality improvement practices to improve hypertension clinical processes. Participating Rural Health Clinics will also have access to the Initiative’s Accountable Care Project reporting tools.
