Custom Public Health IT Development

Navigating Health Care Challenges with Tailored Solutions

Health care faces a myriad of technology challenges—from managing and effectively using vast amounts of patient data while ensuring regulatory compliance to effectively guarding against emerging threats to data security. With decades of experience developing public health information technologies, Altarum’s cross-functional team of software engineers, data scientists, and public health analysts have the expertise to deliver holistic, custom solutions.

Unlike typical IT vendors, we’re a nonprofit, mission-driven organization dedicated to helping state governments and others across the health care spectrum improve health through technology. And as true partners in public health, we’ll be there to onboard and implement, ensuring maximum efficiency, seamless integration, and ongoing support to empower our clients in advancing their health care initiatives.
