Our History

Unique academic heritage and
technology perspective

After working at the University of Pennsylvania managing technology for nearly twenty years, Dr. Noam H. Arzt founded HLN Consulting, LLC, in 1997 by bringing together a unique academic heritage and technology perspective. Ever since, HLN Consulting has been a leading health informatics consulting company focused on developing and supporting robust technical solutions to address pressing health informatics needs.

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.
