Advancing the health of public health

Are you ready for the next public health crisis? Or for rebuilding our nation’s health infrastructure? Whatever the future holds, we can help. Partnering with federal, state, and local governments, we're making public health systems stronger and more responsive by reinventing the way services are delivered.

Maximus' Center for Health Innovation (CHI) is here to promote new models of delivering public health services that are integrated with the larger health ecosystem. We are here to help governments respond to population health needs and emerging public health threats with technical assistance and data analytics capabilities.

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.
