inHealth strives to be a leading influence in how communities improve their health profiles.

While government reports tend to focus on communities with the worst outcomes on various measures, we prefer to attack the problems head-on with innovative and comprehensive programs.

Our ability to build and lead coalitions of employers, health care providers and municipal programs makes inHealth the natural partner for a community looking to improve its health profile.

Beginning with data analysis, we seek the upstream factors that cause negative health outcomes, look at resources already existing in the community, and develop partnerships for collective action.

Once we identify gaps and opportunities, we identify actionable steps that lead to the most comprehensive and collaborative approach to best move the needle on any given measure.


Mayor’s Healthy City Initiative (MHCI)

Our lead consultant for community health initiatives came to us from the Mayor’s Healthy City Initiative (MHCI) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Through collaborative work, the MHCI identified the organizations and public services they provided, coordinated their efforts and facilitated greater social impact.

Farm To WorkBeginning with the nation’s first joint Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) process and realigning both public and private resources, the program in Baton Rouge was able to:

  • develop a Mobile Farmers Market, Healthy Corner Store Initiative and Food Access Policy Commission,
  • increase physical activity and health education in schools
  • create HIV task forces that boosted testing 28% in one year
  • provide over 320,000 free, healthy summer meals to children and teens annually

This is a great example of leveraging existing community resources to improve the quality of the population health and use data to continuously increase effectiveness.
