About Us

CHR Northwest

Launched in the Pacific Northwest in 1964, CHR continues to build on a successful track record of tackling health care issues.

Portland, Oregon. One of the most livable cities in the United States. More urban wilderness than any other US city, charming neighborhoods with eclectic restaurants, and a vibrant cultural life within an hour’s drive of ski slopes, ocean beaches, and high desert.

Part of Kaiser Permanente Northwest health and dental care programs. A connection that gives our researchers unparalleled data sources in a full-service health system that cares for all ages and walks of life.

A full spectrum of health care innovation. Multi-disciplinary patient-centered, population, and practice-based research. Affiliations and collaborative partnerships, ranging from academic medical centers, other large medical plans, to community clinics.

Technical and administrative staff. Recruitment, behavioral interventions, proposal development, contracts, editing, graphic design, and library and reference searches.
