Population Health Improvement Partners


Population Health Improvement Partners (Improvement Partners) (improvepartners.org) was founded in 2009 in North Carolina with a simple purpose: help public health organizations and multi-sector partnerships build their capacity to continuously improve and ensure measurably better health. We have expanded statewide and nationally and have grown our reputation as sought-after experts in improvement and implementation science, who are knowledgeable and easy to work with thought-partners, coaches, and expert advisors. We seek to improve health on a massive scale and enhance the ability of health organizations to address health equity, ultimately changing the world. Improvement Partners is a problem-solving partner, working for a healthier tomorrow and delivering expertise that is adaptable and achieves outstanding results.

Improvement Partners has evolved into a nonprofit consulting practice with deep improvement science and project management expertise, addressing systems-level change in the population health space, and partnering with groups with specific domain expertise in key sub-sectors of population health that have the infrastructure to manage work with very large clients and complex multi-stakeholder collaborations.

Improvement Partners has experienced strong national expansion in the last nine years, including work that has broadened to include hospitals, health systems, federal government-based projects and a greater share of new work emerging outside of North Carolina. Improvement Partners has the benefit of 501c3 charitable status through its fiscal sponsor organization of TSNE (tsne.org). The organization operates as an independently directed nonprofit led by co-executive directors and advisory board under a mutual fiscal sponsorship agreement.
