Report Highlights How Partnerships with Care Providers are Measurably Improving Whole Health
INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 30, 2023--
In a new report issued by Elevance Health, Inc. (NYSE: ELV) the company highlights its continued efforts to advance health beyond healthcare by partnering with the nation’s care providers. The Advancing Health Together: Progress Report details how by working together to contract for outcomes, collaborate for success, and connect for health, Elevance Health and its care provider partners are measurably improving health access, outcomes, and affordability.
With 80% of a person's health driven by what happens outside the doctor's office,1 care providers are frequently confronted with significant challenges beyond their control. Every person’s health is impacted by a complex web of physical, behavioral, pharmacy, and social factors – and too often, care providers don’t have access to this information about their patients.
As a company whose affiliated health plans serve more than 47.5 million Americans, Elevance Health has robust data, expertise, and capabilities that can help care providers address “whole health” and work together to turn insights into actions. The Advancing Health Together report demonstrates how Elevance Health is doing this by partnering with care providers through payment design, clinical programs, integration of non-traditional care, and more.
“As our report demonstrates, measurable progress in improving whole health is possible when payers and care providers come together as true partners,” said Bryony Winn, President, Health Solutions, Elevance Health. “I’m immensely proud of what we have accomplished together to date, but there is a long way to go. At Elevance Health, we are fully committed to being an active partner with care providers to drive even better results going forward.”
Elevance Health’s size and scale makes the company uniquely qualified to create collaborative partnerships:
1.7 million+ care provider relationships nationwide
47 million+ total medical membership
11.6% of U.S. births covered by a health plan affiliate
119 million people served
