Humana’s Chief Innovation Officer, Chris Kay, sat down last week with Richard Angus of Innovation Enterprise for a Google Hangout to discuss the changing landscape in the health care industry.
Humana’s primary objective, Chris said, is to bend the trend on health by providing consumer-oriented solutions that help people lead a better life while slowing the progression of disease. The goal is to innovate across a customer’s health journey; when there’s a barrier, we help come up with a solution.
Chris talked about our Bold Goal and the importance of moving away from episodic care and toward holistic care. He talked about helping customers manage complex chronic conditions, or even multiple chronic conditions.
He explained Humana’s partnership with Omada Health, which recently showed that seniors can engage online and successfully manage their health. And he talked about our work with Livongo Health, providing cloud-based, real-time management of diabetes.
It’s all about what Chris calls ROH – Return on Health. We’re helping people invest now for a healthier future.
