Using research, evaluation, and analytics to improve community health
About REACH Consulting
Research, Evaluation, and Analytics for Community Health
REACH is an independent consulting firm focused on research, program and policy evaluations, and qualitative and quantitative data analysis. We work with communities and stakeholders to examine public health and social issues. REACH specializes in using data to inform critical programmatic and policy decisions. All our work is guided by our core values of collaboration, rigor, and utility.
Together, we'll figure out which questions you need answered. We'll select and use methods that are appropriate given your context.
Our work is rigorous and credible. We refer to the latest scientific evidence. You can be confident in the data and the answers we find.
Our goal is to provide actionable information. We want findings from our studies to be used for program planning and decision-making.
We recently relocated from Anchorage, AK to Portland, OR, and we collaborate with clients across the United States and internationally.
What We Do
At REACH, we help you tell the story of your program. We use data to understand the impact of your work, all with the intention of creating positive change and improving the health and wellbeing of communities. We provide support in study design, data collection, data analysis, and dissemination efforts. Our clients include federal, state, and local government agencies; Tribal Entities; nonprofits; healthcare organizations; and other private-sector groups.
Whether your goal is to better understand a need, improve a program, implement a new process, or estimate the impact of a policy, we'll work with you to design a study to answer your most important questions, such as:
How is this program or policy being implemented?
What is the evidence or promising practices related to this program or policy?
Is the program or policy working?
How can we improve the program?
How can we effectively disseminate findings to stakeholders?
