What We Do


Social Impact Design

We specialize in patients and families as design partners. 

Highly Tailored

We design based on an in-depth understanding of organizations, teams, trends, culture and priorities.

Teaching you to Fly

We show you everything we know, so you can do the work without us whenever you’re ready. Why do we try and put ourselves out of work? When you’re trying to change the world like we are, creating capacity in others is the only way to achieve human-connected care at scale.

What We Do

We design based on need and experience level. Our phases include Exploring, Visioning, Planning & Intention Setting, and Implementation Support. 



X4 Health Expertise

X4’s passion lies in carving new pathways to a better system, fueled by human connection. We power social impact projects for the short term and the long haul.

Examples of our innovation-related work include:

Community ROCKit


Is your community ready to rock COVID recovery? Community ROCKit is a Resource Organizer for Covid Kit, designed to help communities collaboratively identify and use existing assets to work toward health and economic recovery.


3rd Conversation

What if there was a way to reinvent the patient-clinician relationship and address clinician burnout at the same time? X4 is driving a new national initiative to create human connection and spark deeper systems change.  


It should be easy for patients to access their medical records – right? X4 led a 12-month campaign to shed light on what happens when patients request an electronic version of their medical records using their established legal rights. X4 designed and coordinated the first year of GetMyHealthData, which is now housed in a DC-based advocacy organization.


A tool developed by X4 Health to help health care organizations do a better job at responding to HIPAA records requests with electronic formats. Funded by the Commonwealth Fund, our philosophy was simple: make the right thing to do the easy thing to do for the nation’s health care providers.

Hack the PFAC

The newest member of the X4 innovation family, this proof-of-concept lights a path toward putting Patient and Family Advisory Councils (PFACs) online.


Project Acceleration

We take the hard work out of doing great work.
