Firm Overview

Bannon Consulting Services works with nonprofit organizations and government agencies to expand the availability of community-based services and effect meaningful transformation of the health care system. We advance innovative models of primary care, behavioral health treatment, housing, and human services that address the needs of marginalized populations. We work primarily with organizations that address overlapping complex health conditions (such as HIV, Hepatitis C, mental illness, and substance use disorders) and socio-economic barriers (such as homelessness, unemployment, and involvement in the criminal justice system). We believe that community-based services are essential to achieving the health care reform goals of improving quality of care and population health, and reducing costs.

Business Planning: As a result of health care delivery system reform efforts and the expansion of Medicaid, community-based organizations have unprecedented opportunities but also considerable challenges.

The Project Associate may be involved in helping clients navigate the regulatory process of establishing and expanding Medicaid-funded medical, mental health, and substance use treatment programs.

Evaluation: Bannon Consulting works with clients to design and implement comprehensive evaluation plans that include logic model development, identification of process and outcome indicators, and statistical data analysis plans. The Project Associate may be involved in assisting clients in establishing the systems and tools needed to collect and monitor data that inform program improvements and ensures that evaluation is integrated into the agency’s existing quality improvement efforts.

The Project Associate may support work with clients to identify and acquire resources to support health care reform implementation; advocate for policy change and funding opportunities at the state and city levels; participate in city and statewide workgroups and initiatives; and closely monitor changes in policy, regulatory, and funding environments to ensure our clients’ ongoing success in the evolving health care landscape.

Coalition Support: Bannon Consulting convenes or participates in several citywide coalitions that meet to share best practices and work to identify innovative solutions to emerging challenges.
