Health care consumers expect to be engaged in their health not only in the doctor’s office, but in their everyday life. Demonstrated by the millions of consumers turning to wearables, apps, and digital services, consumers are seeking convenient options that help them better manage their lifestyle. Seeing the opportunity to better impact and engage with members, leading health care organizations are integrating digital tools and experiences deeply into their offerings. These groups are proving that in order to meet the growing expectations of consumers, they must offer digital-first experiences.
Growing bodies of research show that an integrated model – leveraging both human and digital touchpoints – is necessary to engage members where they are in their everyday life and to better address their ‘whole-health.’ Trends in continuous monitoring programs powered by personal health data are paving the way for organizations to build a model of care delivered in the home, from the phone, or on-the-go. To help health insurance providers better understand how to use these data and the technology available, Humana and Validic offer the industry benchmarks, best practices, and market guidance driving care beyond the clinical and meeting ever-evolving consumer expectations.
