Advancing Health TogetherProgress 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.
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.
