Impactivo, LLC. is an impact-driven consulting firm founded in 2011 that specializes in connecting population health, quality and financial value. Our team has worked with publicly traded health management organizations, multinational pharmaceuticals, hospitals, physician groups and community organizations in New York, Washington DC and Puerto Rico with outstanding results. Our experience suggests that the key to success in the post-Obamacare era lies at the intersection of the interests of patients, clinicians and insurers. We transform health organizations by using data, design and inspiration to align these interests. More specifically, we translate research and policy to action while building systemic, operational and strategic funding capacity.

At Impactivo, we provide our clients with the most up to date knowledge and relevant tools to help them deliver outstanding outcomes in their programs and bottom line. We are great at what we do because we have in depth subject matter expertise of health and health care, skills in data and public policy analysts, greater knowledge of what truly makes a company productive, and the capacity to navigate the profit/public divide.

At IMPACTIVO we care deeply about what we do. For this reason we do our work with the highest level of responsibility and excellence. Our staff are knowledgeable about our fields of work and go beyond the call of duty to understand our client’s individual needs and achieve transformational change. Our Principals have decades of combined experience working in health care, business and management consulting. Our “hands on” approach to consulting is a result of our Principals’ experience as C-Level Executives, as well as their mutual understanding of what it takes to run successful health care organizations.

We are proud to be a minority and woman owned small business based in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Our firm is the only recipient of an Affordable Care Act Patient Centered Oriented Research Institute Award on the Island and we were also selected by the U.S. Small Business Administration to the Emerging Leaders Program. Impactivo is also the first Certified B Corporation on the Island and we are registered in SAM (Cage Code – 6AUC9) and DUNS (967479705). We are best known for achieving the top standards of compliance and quality recognition for our clients, all while achieving significant financial returns and accessing over $50 million in federal awards.
