A health ecosystem that works better for everyone
Highmark Health's blended approach connects payers, providers, tech innovators, and community organizations to build a health ecosystem that works better for everyone: Living Health.
The Living Health strategy means creating better insurance products that provide 360 support for physical, mental, and social health. We're just as focused on redesigning care delivery through deep payer-provider partnerships, including a fully owned regional health system, as well as joint ventures and value-based collaborations in each of our markets.
By integrating health, coverage, and care, Living Health reduces the stress and frustration of more fragmented approaches. The result is a simpler, more personalized, and proactive health experience for individuals and clinicians that promotes better engagement and everyday health rather than just treating illness.
Digital technology, including virtual care options and remote medical devices, is integral to Living Health, bringing convenient health support and care to people where and when they need it.
Highmark Health has long-term partnerships with Google Cloud and Verily to develop a seamless integrated Living Health platform and digital health solutions that empower individuals and clinicians to be more engaged and effective in improving health. One Living Health solution, Well360 Diabetes Management, is already broadly available, and others are in pilot and development stages.
Living Health's digital solutions strengthen the patient-clinician relationship and simplify communications. By leveraging evidence-based medicine and predictive analytics, they also help identify real-time "next best actions" to improve health outcomes.
Our Living Health strategy revolves around the Quadruple Aim improving patient experience, clinician experience, and health outcomes, while reducing costs. We believe the success of this strategy will help revolutionize the industry, providing a better, more sustainable economic model for all stakeholders, including employers.
Just as important, Living Health is a continuously improving fulfilment of our mission to create a remarkable health experience, freeing people to be their best.
