The business of livelihood
We are BroadReach Group. We believe that access to good health enables people to flourish.
With that belief, we formed a global social enterprise that harnesses health technology and innovation that empowers human action. BroadReach Group has nearly two decades of healthcare expertise combined with world-class technology solutions to help organizations deliver better health outcomes, improved efficiency of scarce healthcare resources, cost savings, enhanced organizational performance, and more sustainable health systems.
BroadReach Group operates through two businesses: Vantage Health Technologies and BroadReach Health Development. In seeking to transform how health work gets done, we work at the intersection of public sector and private sector health payors and providers, governments, and foundations to deliver results across the health value chain.
Empowering Action. Changing Lives.
We are the BroadReach Group:
