Delaware Center for Health Innovation (DCHI)

The Delaware Center for Health Innovation (DCHI) was established in early 2014 to work with the Health Care Commission and the Delaware Health Information Network (DHIN) to guide the State Innovation Models effort and track its progress. DCHI is a non-profit organization dedicated to the implementation of Delaware's State Healthcare Innovation Plan with a budget of $130 million, to be supported by contributions from stakeholders and a large grant from the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation. With robust and ongoing support from across the healthcare industry, government and the business community, Delaware is uniquely positioned to lead the nation in pioneering a true public-private partnership to achieve the triple aim of improving population health, improving care, and reducing healthcare cost.
