Community Benefit Services

The Colorado Health Institute offers some of our services free of charge as a community benefit in keeping with our mission to help support the healthiest Colorado possible.

Customized Information Requests

Need data to understand the health of your community or even your neighborhood? Conducting a health needs assessment? We are here to help. If the work related to your information request takes us four hours or less, there will not be a charge.


Our experts are trained to give useful, informative and interesting presentations on a variety of health policy topics, and they make dozens of presentations annually. We explain the most recent health policy decisions in Colorado and in Washington, D.C. We highlight emerging topics in health care delivery and payment systems. And we tailor presentations to your community. Professors of undergraduate and graduate classes often seek us out.

Legislative Services

Our legislative team focuses on supporting lawmakers and staff members with evidence, including data and analysis, about proposed bills. We conduct research for elected officials free of charge. We also provide pre-session and post-session reports. In addition, we track health policy during the session and write regular updates.


CHI regularly brings together groups of Coloradans working on health policy projects. Our independent status and knowledgeable staff members combine to produce successful meetings. For example, representatives of safety net organizations gather at CHI’s offices throughout the year to share learnings.
