Who are

Our Mission is to promote the use of data and technology in the public sector to ensure the right to a healthy life for all Brazilian women and men, without exception.

We are a non-profit, supraparty organization that works side by side with states and municipalities to improve the collection and analysis of data from health services and, thus, positively impact the lives of the population.

Data at the service of
Brazilian public health

Impulso Gov emerged in 2019 with the purpose of helping to correct a bottleneck for the improvement of Brazilian public health: countless data are generated in the provision of public health services, but few are transformed into useful information to feed back and improve public policies. 

To identify in advance the growth of diseases in the population in order to apply preventive measures, project the demand for care to plan the hospital infrastructure, identify priorities to organize the visit schedule of community health agents, are some examples of the transformation that the use of data can bring to public health. 

The fact that there is a Unified Health System in Brazil creates some challenges common to municipal and state governments. We work on two fronts to help overcome them:

We develop analyzes and visualizations of open data for use by states and municipalities;

We work on a daily basis with governments, supporting the development of customized solutions for local realities, in our territorial projects.

Ours values

We impact people, through government

Public managers of the SUS have an immense responsibility. We work so that they have the best tools to offer quality health services to the population.

We create simple and scalable solutions

We break the problem into smaller pieces and build practical solutions that generate action and high impact. We use data and technology to our advantage so that our solutions reach as many people as possible.

We question and we do

We encourage questions, because we believe they lead us to better decisions. At the same time, we do and act: we don't expect to have all the answers to get down to business, because many of them will only come with practice. 

we take care of each other

We share information and insights so that everyone does their best work. We dedicate time to support people on the team who need help; we truly listen to and empathize with the feelings of others. 

We build strong and diverse teams

We form strong and diverse teams because the size of the challenges we face requires the best team and different points of view. We hire great people with a sparkle in their eyes, even if it takes time to find them, and we invest in their development. 

We are suprapartisans

Our organization is supraparty, with operations in all regions of the country.
