About Us

Founded by physicians and public health experts, HealthBegins is a social enterprise that believes that healthcare is better when it routinely addresses ‘upstream’ social and environmental conditions that make people sick, especially for our most vulnerable patients and communities. HealthBegins advances a culture of health by mobilizing and equipping health professionals to improve care and the social determinants of health. Drawing on first-hand experience of building and leading healthcare improvements, HealthBegins is a leading network for healthcare “Upstreamists,” professionals who systematically integrate clinical care and community health efforts. HealthBegins builds system capability and supports practice redesign through strategic consulting, technical assistance, and training solutions. Led by Dr. Rishi Manchanda, HealthBegins has activated thousands of providers, educators, payers and community partners around the world to improve care and the social factors that make people sick in the first place.
