Our Work

Altarum is a nonprofit organization that works with federal and state agencies and foundations to improve the health of individuals with fewer financial resources and populations disenfranchised by the health care system. Our work—from developing technology solutions to implementing innovative programs—is aimed at driving this mission forward. We focus on areas such as long-term services and supports, Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, and maternal health. Our ideas are informed by evidence and our programs achieve measurable results that lead to better health and better value.

Our impact is visible across the country. We’re advancing next-generation vital statistic data modernization for the state of Michigan; helping dozens of states advance interoperability of their newborn screening programs; and strengthening the maternal and child health infrastructure with universities and other academic institutions. These are just a few examples of our work, but they show the difference we’re making to improve public health and address disparities.

Our People

With over 70 years of public sector innovation, we understand the value of integrating different perspectives to solve complex problems. Our more than 300 employees—from software developers to health analytics experts—make up a diverse workforce that is enriched by the representation of many ethnic, racial, gender, and socio-economic experiences and identities.

We value independent thinking, innovation, and collaboration. Regardless of which position you hold, you’ll have the opportunity to have an impact.


In addition to medical, dental, and retirement plans, we offer other perks to help our employees stay motivated and enjoy a work-life balance.

  • Grow – We are committed to investing in our team. We offer opportunities for continuous growth through LinkedIn Learning, staff-led webinars, a leadership development program, and tuition reimbursement.
  • Recharge – Take time to recharge with our generous Paid Time Off (PTO) benefits, as well as options to sell back any unused PTO.
  • Balance – We value work-life balance, and so offer flexible schedules and periodic teleworking for many positions. Our technology makes it easy to work regardless of our physical location.
  • Be Yourself – We work hard, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We value a comfortable, casual, and collegial work environment.
  • Take Care – We offer an array of health care benefits to accommodate people with different needs and priorities, allowing our employees to choose what best fits their needs.
  • Gain Recognition – We know the importance of receiving recognition for great work. We regularly award an employee with our Altarum Excellence award for superior performance in leadership, innovation, or service.
