Why Choose Aphirm?
Welcome to Advanced Public Health Information and Relational Mapping (Aphirm)
At Luther Consulting, we solve your data collection, management, and reporting problems so you can focus on important public health challenges. Our goal is to help you make a difference in the lives of your clients and communities.
That’s why we developed Aphirm, our client-centered, relationship-driven data management solution. When we call Aphirm “relationship driven,” we aren’t just referring to how the system helps you see relationships among data, which can inform vital decisions that improve client and community welfare. We’re also referring to how Aphirm incorporates the best of what we’ve learned from helping public health organizations just like yours for over 20 years.
Aphirm is more than a public health data system, however. Because we provide Aphirm as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) application, customers do not have to download software, manage information technology infrastructures, or deal with any aspects of software management. Not only do we handle maintenance, upgrades, support, security and all other aspects of managing Aphirm, we also provide technical support and training related to using the system.
Access is by subscription for an annual fee, billed monthly.

Aphirm is built around your needs.
We have a number of pick-what-you-need modules for testing and related services. If we don’t have a module for the specific disease, set of interventions, or other activity for which you require data collection, management, and reporting, we can partner with you to create a solution.
- HIV Testing
- HIV Partner Services
- Hepatitis C
- STD Surveillance and Partner Services
- Evidence-Based Interventions/Risk Reduction Activities
- Referrals and Appointments
Plus, these modules are customizable through consultation with our experts, so data entry screens can be adapted to reflect your required data points, adjusted to your workflows, and evolve as your organization’s needs change over time.
You want a complete client picture.
With Aphirm, you can attach all of a client’s activities to a single record, whether you’re working with one funding source or many. As a result, you get a complete picture of the client’s demographics and risks, interactions with your organization (such as testing and intervention enrollments), and linkages to care. Moreover, each client activity connects to its corresponding funding source.
You need useful, user-friendly reporting.
When you’re ready to run reports on your data in Aphirm, you have plenty of options, including our built-in custom report builder, Reflexx. You’re able to preview and manipulate your data on-screen, and choose among many chart types.
Bulk data exports and popular pre-formatted reports are also available in Aphirm. And if you find yourself needing additional pre-formatted reports to meet specific needs of your organization, we can create those for you – just let us know!
Data quality is critical.
After more than 20 years of providing public health software solutions, we’re experts in using technology to help you avoid the problems that invalid, duplicate, missing, and incongruent data can cause. Our solutions support you in your efforts to provide accurate reports to funders and stakeholders, evaluate current strategies, plan for the future, and ensure that you aren’t missing opportunities to connect clients to care. With your subscription to Aphirm, you are able to work with our team to determine how our quality assurance tools may be customized to fit your unique organizational workflows.
Rigorous system security is non-negotiable.
We know the safety of your clients’ data is critically important, both to you and your clients. We work closely with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state health departments, and other agencies to ensure we are following the most recent IT security recommendations and protocols. Our systems undergo frequent and rigorous security scans, database fields are encrypted, and we require two-factor authentication for system access. We also include Aphirm in our independent SOC 2® Type 2 Security Compliance audit on an annual basis.
The on-going consultation and support will make your job easier.
Your subscription to Aphirm includes regular consultation with the experts at Luther Consulting. Initially, we collaborate with you to determine which customizations fit your situation and will address the data challenges you’re experiencing. Then, we continue to work with you over time to ensure that your system meets your needs even as these needs evolve. You and your users get live technical assistance from our friendly and knowledgeable in-house support team whenever you have a question or encounter a problem. Plus, you have access to help and training materials in a variety of formats to accommodate a range of learning styles. You also have options for on-site or virtual training to get you and your users up and running with the system and new features, or special sessions if you need them.
