Advancing Health Together

Progress Report

Becoming a Lifetime, Trusted Health Partner

Hear our President and CEO, Gail Boudreaux, talk about how Elevance Health is partnering to reimagine the healthcare system by elevating the importance of whole health and advancing health beyond healthcare.

Partnering for Progress

At Elevance Health, improving the health of humanity is the purpose driving all our work. Yet we realize that achieving this will take immense collaboration. We know the invaluable importance of the role that our care provider partners play inside and outside of the healthcare system, and in no uncertain terms, we recognize that achieving our purpose will take the closest of collaborations between us.

This report outlines our approach to make meaningful, measurable progress toward that goal by partnering closely with care providers to make whole health a reality, one person at a time.

The 2022 Advancing Health Together: Progress Report summarizes how we are committing to whole health by contracting for outcomes, collaborating for success, and connecting for health.

Committing to Whole Health

Progress to achieving real whole health can only be made with a thorough understanding of the healthcare market, definition of specific outcomes, and rigorous methods for measuring each of them. Here are our beliefs and plan relating to each.

Contracting for Outcomes

Changing how healthcare is paid for may be the single most impactful lever for improving our healthcare system. Whether consumers choose a health plan in the Medicaid, Medicare, or Commercial markets, we are “all in” on leading the move to value-based reimbursement.

Collaborating for Success

Advancing health together means supporting care providers with the data, insights, and tools they need to deliver exceptional care to their patients — our consumers. By partnering with care providers of all types, we aspire to be the easiest payer to work with.

Connecting for Health

Connecting the dots between consumers' physical, behavioral, social, and pharmacy needs is a tough task. Here is how our services company, Carelon, does just that — making it easier to deliver whole health.

Moving Forward Together

It takes all of us — care providers, inside and outside of the clinical setting, and payers — actively working together to create a strong healthcare delivery system. Only then will we create a real impact in and with the communities we serve.
