HealthLeaders Media recently wrote about Humana’s Bold Goal and the company’s efforts to improve health and well-being and help communities make better use of their own powerful resources.
Dr. Roy Beveridge, Humana’s Chief Medical Officer, noted that members usually stay with Humana for seven to eight years, giving the company a chance to improve their health.
“The more we improve their health, their lives improve. But also, the better it is for us financially,” he told the publication. “We learned years ago that we have these phenomenally, wonderfully aligned interests. The healthier we make our population, the better off we are financially and obviously the better it is for the patient.”
Dr. Beveridge and Pattie Dale Tye, segment vice president at Humana and leader of the Bold Goal initiative, spoke about the importance of local partners.
The article noted that “the Bold Goal program incorporates grocery stores, pharmacies, local governments, gyms, transportation sources, and other factors that can affect an individual’s health.”
