Addressing social determinants of health, advancing health equity, and reducing risk of illness and disease are key to improving overall health outcomes and enhancing the quality of life in communities across the country. Federal investments in public health initiatives and cutting-edge medical research are essential to achieving these goals. For two decades, McAllister & Quinn has partnered with hospitals, health systems and academic medical centers to secure federal, state, and foundation funding supporting an array of community health projects and health research initiatives. In turn, these investments have helped healthcare providers advance population health, reduce illness, prevent disease, improve mental and behavioral health outcomes, advance digital health initiatives, and promote high-quality, value-based care to improve care coordination and reduce unnecessary healthcare costs for both patients and healthcare organizations.
Our Healthcare Practice has been at the forefront of working with health providers to develop targeted funding strategies through institution assessments, and then to identify, pursue and obtain government and philanthropic funding for key priorities. These efforts have resulted in approximately $300 million in grant funding for healthcare workforce development, biomedical research initiatives, rural health interventions, behavioral and mental health services, chronic disease prevention, pandemic response, and combating the opioid crisis, to name a few areas.
Key highlights of McAllister & Quinn’s social impact on behalf of our healthcare clients and their communities include federal funding in several high-impact areas:
Strengthening the primary care workforce and addressing the provider shortage public health crisis.
Providing scholarships for allied health programs in underserved communities, bolstering the healthcare workforce and local economies.
Research funding to prevent disease and improve health outcomes.
Enhancing professional development for frontline healthcare workers.
Supporting health innovation and spurring economic development.
Building and developing digital health infrastructure and telemedicine capabilities to advance health access and equity.
Combating addiction and substance use disorders and improving behavioral and mental health services.
These grant projects have empowered our clients to directly improve not only the health and wellness of the communities they directly serve but also nationally and globally through wide-reaching research impacts. As a result of these efforts, communities, particularly those that are underserved, have greater access to the resources they need to address health disparities and related inequities. The positive social impact of these initiatives is far-reaching, and McAllister & Quinn is proud to partner with our healthcare providers on these important projects
