Humana has released its “2020 Bold Goal Progress Report,” which details the company’s progress in its ambitious population health strategy — launched in 2015 — to improve the health of the communities it serves by 20 percent by 2020. The progress report, which can be accessed by clicking here, details the ongoing efforts to help address the impact that social determinants of health and health-related social needs, such as food insecurity and loneliness, have on the physical and mental health of the Medicare Advantage population.
- Forbes reported the news, noting that the work “to improve the health of seniors in private Medicare plans through better management of patient populations continues to show improvement five years into the effort.”
- The American Journal of Managed Care published a front-page story.
- And FierceHealthcare has also posted a front-page story.
While the report focuses on Humana’s continued Bold Goal efforts in 2019, Humana President and Chief Executive Officer Bruce Broussard said the recent public health crisis of COVID-19, and the spotlight on systemic racial inequities, shows more than ever the need for personalized care for each of our members.
Highlights of the report include:
- Humana Medicare Advantage members experienced an additional 816,000 Healthy Days
- Bold Goal communities such as Baton Rouge, Knoxville, New Orleans, San Antonio and Tampa experienced more Healthy Days
- 2.6 million social determinant screenings performed across Humana membership
