Igniting a revolution through blended health

We recognize that the current American health care system is unsustainable — riddled with frustration, complexity and rising costs that are stressful for the consumer and too costly for everyone.

Health care spending in 2018 was 17.7% of gross domestic product and is projected to rise by 2027 to 19.4%, according to the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, a division of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.

And although health care consumes a large proportion of spending in the U.S., indexes consistently show that the U.S. is not among the countries with the longest life expectancies, nor among the healthiest.

The system urgently needs breakthrough ideas, innovative solutions and new visionaries to champion change. So we’re challenging the status quo at every touchpoint.

We've stepped up — to be the catalysts that ignite a revolution — through our unique blended health approach. Learn more.
