Your Innovative Partner In Providing Quality Health Care

For more than 15 years, CHAN has methodically built an infrastructure that affords innovative opportunities. CHAN's cumulative endeavors, particularly in the Health Information Technology (HIT) arena, enable the provision of enriched patient experiences and quality care through HIT.


Community Health Access Network (CHAN) was established in 1995, when five community health care agencies decided to collaborate to provide primary care services to uninsured, underinsured, and Medicaid populations. CHAN administers several grants from Federal, State of New Hampshire, and private foundation sources.

The HCCN (Health Center Controlled Network) Members have established mutual standards for software selection, clinical protocols, operational policy, financial, and operations at the separate sites. This arrangement is necessary to ensure the core uniformity of data collection, storage, and output expected by the Network. Integration is important to the continuation of the local programs that have the experience, expertise, and positive health care outcomes. 


The Board of Directors is comprised of the member health center Directors. CHAN's Executive Director administers the Network business plan and oversees program operation. CHAN has achieved regional and national recognition for our standardized practice electronic management solutions.
