Founded in 1997 by Dr. Noam H. Arzt, HLN Consulting, LLC brings together an academic heritage and technology perspective in a collaborative approach to health information technology. Involved with an early immunization registry effort while at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Arzt recognized the power of collaboration and social consciousness in reaching a common goal. These core values continue to drive the company today. Operating as a certified California small business, through a network of employees and consultants located around the country, our core services encompass a full range of consultant offerings that provide quality service to address our clients’ needs.


We provide a wide range of technology consulting services to public health agencies and their not-for-profit partners.

We embody our core values (Service to Our Clients, Collaboration, Social Consciousness, Intellectual Rigor, Trust and Respect) in every aspect of our activity.
