What we do
We help our clients develop strategies to address complex problems in health care. We bring years of experience in the design, funding, evaluation and scale of health programs to bear, ensuring client’s strategies are grounded in reality, informed by history, and inspired by innovation. We believe in taking a customer-centered approach to systems transformation.
We grapple with complex data, inputs and evidence so that our clients don’t have to. We distill the key insights, which allow our clients to think more clearly, more strategically and take action. Additionally, we work to turn those insights into visual statements that help clients communicate their thinking and plans more effectively to others.
We design programs, initiatives and partnerships to move strategies into action. Impact for Health specializes in facilitating intensive design sessions for teams and groups of partner organizations. These sessions enable a strategic vision to rapidly gain traction with key stakeholders, and quickly generate actionable progress against the common vision.
Generating impact at scale is an adaptive process. We support investors, donors and companies to optimize key processes and business lines that are core to their goals. Beyond uncovering current processes and challenges, we work with clients to understand the rationale for these processes and then to “break the rules” around those processes so that they can see the opportunities for actionable change. Clients have found that learning from external models to inform these optimization steps is energizing and empowering.
Our Latest Work
Defining The Challenge
At Impact for Health we view getting to the heart of the challenge as a process in and of itself – iterative, reflective and profound. Articulating our clients core challenge in a way that aligns and motivates can be half of the battle, we won’t stop until we’ve got it right.
Distilling The Insights
Solid and discerning analysis of the published and unpublished literature is just a starting point. Tireless pursuit of consumer and stakeholder input allows us to triangulate, nuance and further question the evidence. We then work to synthesize the core challenges and opportunities that arise from the data, and refine them into actionable insights. Always a heavy lift, it is worth the effort and emphasis.
Answering “So What?”
Some of the hardest work is translating what the novel insights mean for a client and its goal. Impact for Health pushes past the superficial to dig deep into what this means for current and future action.
Ensuring The Vision Is Understood
Impact for Health assures that all the analysis, thinking, debate and deliberation result in findings and recommendation that are understood, not just heard or seen. Using strong narratives and supporting visuals, we ensure that different audiences can clearly see the way forward.
The best strategies can be buried in inboxes. We facilitate intensive sessions for teams and groups of partner organizations to enable a strategic vision to rapidly gain traction with key stakeholders, and quickly generate actionable progress against the common vision.
