Better Health and Wellness for People with Chronic Conditions
What would healthcare for chronic conditions look like if it focused on creating chronic health instead of just treating chronic disease?
Thank you for visiting us! The Chronic Health Improvement Research Program (CHIRP) is an improvement research group linked to a network of collaborations engaged in improving health and healthcare worldwide. We are people with chronic illnesses, clinicians, scientists and researchers, improvement and implementation specialists, innovators, leaders, teachers and learners working to improve the quality, value, and equity of healthcare, health, and wellbeing for people with complex, chronic, and costly (“3C”) health conditions, including multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, and many others.
At CHIRP, we engage in a variety of activities aimed to improve health and healthcare including innovation, improvement, implementation, research, education, and community service. We invite you to visit our site to learn more about our story, our people, and our work.
Please contact us if you want to learn more about CHIRP or explore collaborations with us.
