About UsCollaborative BenefitsNewsOur MembersOur HistoryOur ServicesEmployment Opportunities


The Community Health Access Network (CHAN) is the only Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) in New Hampshire.  Established in 1995, CHAN has developed and supports an integrated clinical and administrative system infrastructure for its ten Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) members which includes 3 Healthcare for the Homeless Programs.

Central to CHAN's focus has been the automation of the primary care health record.  CHAN's systems include a fully integrated Electronic Health Record (EHR), GE Centricity, which supports over 130 providers and partner hospitals.  The EHR also has links to member reference labs and four hospitals. The EHR is linked to the GE Centricity Practice Management (PM) system and shares a common reporting tool.  The providers can also securely access the system remotely to support offsite care. 

CHAN also provides technical assistance and system services to local collaborators and consultation to peers at a national level.
