Health Consulting Services

Serving our State and Federal Partners

For over 27 years, Cognosante has been helping states implement and manage the complex health and human services (HHS) programs. Our consultants understand the business of health and human services and support state and federal agencies to plan, design, develop, implement, operate and enhance their information systems to increase efficiency, effectiveness, accessibility and responsiveness and protect and promote the health, safety and well-being of the citizens they serve.
