Program Monitoring & Evaluation Services
Monitoring and evaluating ongoing, pilot, or innovative programs and policies is a critical activity for federal, state, and local health and human services agencies and nonprofit healthcare organizations. We offer actionable feedback so they can implement immediate improvements, reach benchmarks, sustain funding, and better serve their members.
What Challenges You
Health and human services organizations need to understand and demonstrate how their performance impacts individuals and communities: Is the program succeeding? What qualifies as success? Could it be delivered more cost-effectively without negatively impacting outcomes or access? How can the program or implementation be improved?
Organizations need evidence-based answers so they can evaluate programs in real-time, demonstrate outcomes to funders, and clearly present actionable findings to multiple stakeholders. But they may have limited access to technical specialists who can perform the rigorous assessments needed.

Prioritizing Services to Optimize Outcomes
For a state’s palliative care network, our team evaluated quality of life and cost-effectiveness of services for 10,000 eligible children and families impacted by life-limiting conditions. Through multilingual focus groups and interviews with caregivers, providers, and others, we uncovered opportunities for improvement—empowering the network to shift priorities and resources to close the service gap and align legislative support to continue funding so that these impactful services could continue to be provided.
