All this data — now what?

When you're ready to take your data analytics and identified opportunities to the next level, aVM Health can help. This unique space where change is driven by data is where we operate. 

If you don't have mindfully-designed workflows that support your strategic goals and integrate disparate functional areas, your team will operate in silos. If your organizational strategy isn't mirrored and empowered by your data analytics orchestration, your team will lack visibility, accountability, and struggle to hit targets.

Formed by two women-owned enterprises dedicated to making a substantial and positive impact on the healthcare system, our mission is to bring premium value healthcare consulting services to small and midsize delivery systems, provider groups, facilities and health insurers.

People-driven
change and strategy design

Build systems and programs that last

We orchestrate change from tops-down and bottoms-up, using data to tie it all together. From a robust opportunity identification, to devising new strategies and models, to expert implementation, to standing up KPI and outcomes monitoring to ensure longevity long after we leave.
