Why Choose MPHI
We do high quality work:
After clients hire us once, they usually end up hiring us again and again. Over 90% of our clients say they would both recommend us and use us again. We take pride in knowing that we have so many satisfied customers.
We deliver on time and on budget:
MPHI keeps projects on time and on budget by utilizing best practices and state-of-the-art technology, and by paying close attention to the needs of our customers. Project managers work closely with our financial managers to monitor and control spending.
We work with you according to your needs, not our capacity:
MPHI offers a broad spectrum of methodologies, services and research tools. That variety allows us to design the approach that is best-suited to your needs and budget – instead of trying to make your situation fit into a predetermined model.
We offer highly qualified staff:
Among our staff of more than 350 professionals – including over 100 with master’s and doctoral degrees – are researchers, data analysts, evaluators, and scientists trained in a wide range of fields, including public health, epidemiology, psychology, nursing, business, IT, social work and education. Our work has been disseminated through peerreviewed journals and national conferences.
We are cost competitive:
Partnering with MPHI gives your organization access to resources, depth of knowledge, and diversity of experience in a cost-effective way. Don’t take our word, ask us for an estimate and be prepared to be pleasantly surprised. In addition, our customers regularly tell us how pleased they were that we delivered more than they expected.
We are a single-source solution:
Because our staff has expertise in so many different areas, we can provide you with immediate access to expert advice in translational research, learning solutions, health IT, consulting, and in specialized health care fields in the areas of maternal and child health, chronic disease and injury prevention, health promotion, health systems, workforce development and mental health. We don’t just give you a blueprint and leave you to figure it out – we’re able to work with you every step of the way.
We are an intermediary support organization:
We have extensive experience in community-based work, frequently serving as the intermediary between foundation or government funding sources and the community. Because we do not control funding or determine enforcement, funders and communities find it comfortable to work with MPHI – a neutral, empowering intermediary.
We are neutral and objective:
MPHI avoids all potential conflicts of interest and maintains a neutral standpoint, enabling us to provide acceptable solutions that are thoroughly objective.
We can work anywhere:
We’re based in Michigan and Washington, D.C., but we have clients all over North America.
We have an extensive network to promote your goals:
Our close ties to the academic, government, and health care provider communities mean that our clients benefit from the depth and diversity of the resources of the entire health community. As a result, we often tackle projects of a scope that would be difficult for any single institution to attempt alone and are able to include the voices of all of the affected parties.
We have a long history of working with multiple partners:
MPHI is based on a unique collaborative business model. As a non-profit institute, MPHI is an optimal site for developing health system innovations. We work side-by-side with businesses, foundations, state agencies, academia, professional associations, and community organizations. We encourage you to take advantage of our expertise and our close ties to universities, government, business, and health care providers to find new solutions to your needs.
We are social entrepreneurs:
We have a long history of building social capital networks that bring groups together and get them invested in finding sustainable, innovative solutions. Our staff has extensive experience in community-based work, which gives us the credibility to serve as an effective intermediary between foundation or government funders and the community.
We help you decide what you want and help you get there:
We are committed to helping you plan for the challenges you face now and the ones that lie ahead. We have the resources and the partnerships to help you tailor a solution that is perfect for your needs.
