Advancing Community Health Through Technology, Training, and Collaboration

Making Health Care Services Accessible With Our Network

Community Health Access Network (CHAN) is the only Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) in New Hampshire. Established in 1995, CHAN provides health care IT, including the electronic health record, as well as, training/technical support for 15 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) including 3 Healthcare for the Homeless Programs.

CHAN's focus is to automate the primary care health record. CHAN's systems include a fully integrated Electronic Medical Record (EMR), which supports over 130 providers and partner hospitals. The EMR also has links to reference labs and four hospitals. The EMR shares a common reporting tool with a rich data repository. 

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