Atlas Research released its “Impact Through Innovation” report highlighting how it has helped government improve health care and address urgent health challenges through new technology, agile innovation and evidence-based solutions.
The report covers Atlas’ health innovation impacts in 2018 — its 10-year anniversary — and the strategic roles it plays for two cabinet-level departments: Veterans Affairs and Health and Human Services.
For example, Atlas helped VA develop the strategy and design for the Veterans Health Administration’s Innovation Ecosystem. This included creating the vision and mission, establishing priorities for an “Innovators Network” and expanding innovation through the “Diffusion of Excellence” model.
And with HHS, Atlas worked on nationwide initiatives to develop new approaches for health care challenges affecting critical patients. These include working with stakeholders and implementing new technology to improve rural health care, and spearheading new solutions for HIV prevention and treatment for transgender women.
The report also explores other areas of Atlas’ work, including its part in forging a multi-sector approach to ending the opioid epidemic, addressing suicide prevention at VA, helping veterans receive care in their homes, delivering more effective pre-school education to at-risk kids and more.
“We continue to thrive because we have a deep knowledge of our clients’ missions and populations of concern, which we use to deliver agile, innovative results,” said Robin Portman, Atlas president and CEO. “I am proud that we always aim high and over-deliver not just because we can, but because of our passion to do meaningful work that makes a difference. I am excited for the journey ahead.”
