Health is the product of many factors, only some of which are driven by healthcare. Yet we continue to pay more every year for the latter, without sufficient attention and resourcing for the former, and we individually and collectively suffer the consequences. Our Health and Human Services practice creates opportunities for healthcare organizations to test partnerships with community-based service organizations seeking scaling capital to advance promising solutions. We collaborate with Medicaid Managed Care organizations, health systems, and other entities that assume financial risk for individuals and populations by supporting them in their transition to value-based care. We help quantify the full value of interventions, identify potential repayment sources and means, and attract external capital from the large and expanding pool of investors seeking both social and financial returns. This work enables healthcare companies and human services organizations to collaboratively test and scale innovative solutions that address critical and often unmet needs.
Developing upstream solutions to divert evictions and other drivers of housing loss help mitigate their negative impact on the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities.
Expanding capacity for medical respite—an evidence-based care model—in collaboration with local service providers advances breaking the cycle of hospitalization for individuals experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity.
Mental Health and Substance Use
Integrating physical, mental, and behavioral health care along with more robust screening for early detection optimizes outcomes for those affected by substance use disorder, including pregnant women and individuals experiencing homelessness.
Advanced Care Planning
Transforming the systems-level culture of care to be more consistent with patient needs, values, and preferences yields meaningful health improvement and lowers the total cost of care.
