As a public health professional, you face a number of challenges, from maintaining program effectiveness to coordinating with multiple partner agencies. The Center for Public Health Innovation at CI International exists to help you improve public health through collaboration and ingenuity.

The CPHI Difference

When your stakeholders depend on you, you need a partner who you can depend on. Here are just some of the things we do that make us different.


Providing Friendly Experts

Should public health be fun? We think so. Like any human endeavor, it just works better when it begins from friendly relationships. We aren’t just committed to helping your team, but to building long-term partnerships through amity and trust.


Providing the Right Perspectives

Our team is comprised of individuals with a wide array of expertise and experience in the spectrum of public health practice and research. This helps us understand your needs and address them in new ways you may not have considered.


Providing Essential Data Services

Data is the foundation of every successful public health effort, but gathering, handling and drawing conclusions from it can be a difficult challenge. We bring the data services expertise that helps you refine and reach your goals.


Providing Leadership and Skill Development

Even the greatest leaders and organizations can improve with the right guidance. We partner with you to map out capable programs and teams, and lead them well.


Providing the Tools for Collaboration

Partnering with other agencies and stakeholders allows for the implementation of synergistic solutions leading to a greater impact on Public Health. We help agencies learn to identify these opportunities and build strong alliances and strong public support.


Imagine what you can do if you have the best possible data and partners helping you use it in the best possible way. We can help you create that situation.

  • "JMC has worked with CPHI on several projects focused on timeliness and quality improvement in newborn screening. To each project they have brought deep subject matter expertise, creative problem solving, and impeccable integrity. Their dedication to the mission of supporting and bolstering the newborn screening community is obvious in every interaction with their partners and clients. We look forward to a long a productive partnership!" Mary Kate Yost-Daljev Ph.D.J Michael Consulting

  • "The CPHI team are some of my favorite people to work with in the newborn screening community. They are great at developing, implementing and facilitating meaningful meetings. They work you through the process, make you think, help you plan, and give you tools to use when you go back to the real world…and it’s fun too!

    They are excellent at facilitating meetings, listening to what people say, and summarizing what people say in a way that can be understood by all. They host webinars to keep you engaged in whatever project you’re working on. They have made data approachable and taught us new ways to examine data and to display it in a meaningful way. Finally, they help you evaluate your processes and projects. They not only offer suggestions, but walk you through things in a way that allows you to come up with your own solutions which teaches you to be able to evaluate your processes/projects on your own. I have learned a great deal from working with them and I use what I’ve learned every day!" Carol JohnsonIowa Newborn Screening Program

  • "Recently I collaborated with the Center for Public Health Innovation on a federal grant application to fund a research project serving people with disabilities in Colorado. I was impressed with their ability to describe a number of research design options to our nonprofit and government agency partners. CPHI’s staff clearly articulated the justification for using a rigorous design and was able to effectively hear the concerns of our partners and respond accordingly. This collaborative approach led to us reaching consensus in using a random assignment design. I have been impressed by the team’s ability to communicate research design in understandable terms, consider partner concerns, and build consensus." Peter J.
