Heartland Health Outreach Research Technical Assistance Project

AHP worked with Heartland Health Outreach (HHO), a community-based organization that provides medical, dental, behavioral health care and housing to vulnerable populations, to identify organizational research strengths and program evaluation needs. AHP conducted key stakeholder interviews with HHO administrators, reviewed HHO research implementation strategies, and recommended health care reform-related performance measurements. AHP also worked with HHO leadership to disseminate its research-related projects at a national level.

Positioning a Provider of HIV/AIDS Services in the Managed Care Market

AHP developed a strategic plan for this nonprofit provider of services for individuals with HIV/AIDS, focused on new products and services arising from health care reform opportunities, specifically guiding the organization in expanding its services to managed care organizations (MCOs). Once in place, the plan laid a foundation for AHP to help the client develop proposals to solicit contracts for specialized managed care services to the HIV/AIDS and other vulnerable populations. These proposals were submitted to major managed care insurers with plans targeting the Medicaid long term care services markets.
