Lolina, Inc. is a healthcare and public health consultancy. We work with clients to strengthen essential components of the healthcare system to achieve improved population health.
Lolina works with clients in partnership to appreciate their unique needs. We partner with individuals, teams, programs, organizations, and health systems to recognize barriers to efficiency and effectiveness, and to generate customized solutions through interactive and engaged problem-solving.
We believe that chronic disease, health equity and effective healthcare services utilization are the top priorities that face our healthcare system today — and that effective leadership is the key to all successful individuals, teams, programs, organizations, and systems. We embrace the visions of a healthier tomorrow by providing consultation that strengthens services and programs to achieve the TRIPLE AIM: Improved population health, improved quality of care, and reduced costs. When all aspects of the healthcare system align limit resources to improve the health status of individuals — especially among underserved populations — the overall health status of our communities will improve.
