AHP offers professional consulting services—also known as AHP Healthcare Solutions—to health, behavioral health, and social services businesses that need to stay competitive in the changing health care market, while staying true to their missions of helping people reach their full potential. 

Often business development fails to take into account the specific characteristic of high-risk and vulnerable populations—racing to develop solutions to meet the needs of providers and managed care organizations rather than those of the people they are entrusted to serve. We know your clients and your business. In fact, many of our staff members have served as clinicians or direct care workers and in management and leadership roles in behavioral health, human services, and managed care settings around the country.

We offer services in:

  • Health and behavioral health care integration
  • Design of population-linked service systems (PLSS)
  • New product, service, and business development
  • Provider network development

Our consultants are national experts in health care reform, population health, and integrative care. Our focus blends the triple aims of health care reform (quality, outcomes and cost containment) with what we know works—evidence-based best practices formulated over decades for special populations. We can assist your organization on your path to designing population-linked service systems; developing new products, services, and sources of revenue; integrating health and behavioral health services; and navigating the intricacies of provider network development.

AHP has more than 35 years of expertise in conducting research and evaluation to answer critical questions in health and human services that drive policy, practice, and program improvements and development. Experts from our Center for Research and Evaluation are on the leading edge of research in the areas of mental health policy and services, substance use disorder treatment and prevention, co-occurring disorders, workforce development, homelessness and housing, employment, trauma, domestic violence, and criminal justice.

Our team will work collaboratively with you in all stages of the research process, from initial definition of research questions through to implementation and final reporting. Using a range of designs featuring qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods in single site and multisite studies, we can expertly gather and analyze your data and transform it into powerful, actionable guidance for your organization. We will help you leverage our research results for investment and funding opportunities, fulfillment of reporting requirements, improvement of policy and practice, and ultimately, better service for your clients.
