An integrated system that connects government hospitals and clinics with a network of community health workers to deliver high-quality, affordable healthcare from hospital to home.
Integrated Healthcare System
Our delivery model provides integrated care between government facilities and community health workers at and across the points of delivery, from hospital to home.
Integrated: services including screening, counseling, treatments, and follow-ups are administered and coordinated at and across the points of care, from the hospital to the home
Disease-Driven: treatments are targeted at the biggest drivers of morbidity and mortality
Adaptive: systems are designed to meet new needs and unanticipated calamities, from earthquakes to epidemics
The goals of this model are to maintain a patient-centered design and improve health outcomes for an entire population.
“It is a model with all the right pieces— it reaches the poorest, government resources are leveraged, and data and transparency are used to prove that results demand more investment.”
+ Governor Howard Dean, M.D.
Traditional healthcare fails to solve for vulnerable patients who need it the most.
The private sector cannot deliver on cost. The public sector fails to deliver on quality. And philanthropy produces pockets of excellence, but can’t scale.
As a result, there is a huge market of people who are left out.
But there is a fourth way — what we call integrated healthcare.
Integrated healthcare is a healthcare system that puts patients at the center of its design. It’s a public-private partnership that enables a nonprofit healthcare company to be paid by the government to deliver healthcare within the government’s infrastructure, while strategically accessing philanthropy to allow for innovation and best practices.
It brings together the quality of the private sector, access of the public sector, and innovation enabled by philanthropy. And it ties core financing to performance.

“This design brings together the best assets of each sector: the government finances and provides infrastructure, we bring management acumen and only get paid if we deliver outcomes. Most importantly, because we are a nonprofit healthcare company, we only need to achieve cost recovery, not profitability. That changes everything. It allows us to go where no private company would see opportunity and use the combination of government funding and philanthropy to build a system that works fully for the poor.”
