An opportunity to rethink, rewire, and retrain

COVID-19 changed everything. With public health systems playing such a vital and visible role in society today, it's never been more important to get things right. In many cases, that will require new approaches, such as partnerships to deliver support functions more efficiently, workforce augmentation solutions to quickly scale up in a crisis, and technology integration to make better use of data. Maximus is at the forefront of these efforts to ready our nation's public health infrastructure for the future.
