Health and Social Services

McKinley Research specializes in research and data analysis that produces actionable information for health care and social services providers.


We work with communities, non-profit organizations, and government agencies to understand the health needs of Alaskans and improve health care services. Our studies include broad community health needs assessments, applied data and epidemiologic analysis, economic impact evaluations, health prevention coalition and program evaluation, health care utilization analysis, and population-level health policy and planning.

Our comprehensive approach draws upon health care utilization and claims data, socioeconomic data, and stakeholder outreach and engagement. Our health team has formal education in public health and epidemiology and prior experience in clinical settings and Alaska’s Tribal Health System.
