Pioneering Solutions that Yield Healthier Communities

Tripp Umbach is the national leader in the community health needs assessment and strategic consulting arena.  We have worked with more than 200 communities in all 50 states.  In fact, more than one in five Americans lives in a community where our firm has worked in the past 20 years.

From community needs assessment protocols to fulfilling the new Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) IRS 990 requirements, Tripp Umbach has turned needs assessments into practical action plans with sound implementation strategies, evaluation processes, and funding recommendations for hundreds of communities. Tripp Umbach has already helped more than 50 hospitals meet their IRS 990 requirements with others beginning as we head into 2013.


Changes introduced as a result of the PPACA have placed an increased level of importance on population health and well-being and on collaborative efforts between providers, public health agencies, and community organizations to improve the overall health of communities. What this means is that organizations have to balance their autonomy with collaborative efforts in improve community health.
