Fireside Chat with Bruce Broussard of Humana

Humana – changing the conversation from sick care to health. Consumer Choice is key.

Innovation is integration.

Barriers: Business models are a barrier. “We make business complex”

FHIR is a neat way to get interoperability via the individual rather than the industry.

Personal devices and Analytics will make a big impact

Lifestyle makes a big impact on cost trends. Inactive people with depression are twice as likely to progress to serious diabetes. (38% v 78%).
There are real costs involved in avoiding the worst case.

The Integration at point of care makes a powerful difference,

Where are the emerging opportunities in Innovation

Use technology to remove intermediaries.
Care Coordination at the local level. This will drive the need for interoperability.

CHF and Diabetes are areas where there is most potential for impact through care coordination.

Humana will even send food to the home on discharge from hospital because they have found that nutrition is a big cause for re-admission.

We need to use Technology and integration to empower and enable personal interactions rather than create isolation.

Medicare Advantage with risk ownership drives innovation in the delivery of care. eg. Transportation, nutrition, home modifications (ramps).

We have to move from Fee for Service to Value-based.

Disintermediation is coming to health. Removing the intermediary between Patient and Providers. Consumer Choice. Great themes!

App Demo – Healthy Communities Institute

Tools for change – Cloud-based solution.

2015 Facts: Majority of School Students live in Poverty. 9% in poorest quartile will receive an advanced degree.

Physical and Social Determinants of Health are the big impacts.

Orange County example: http://2.healthca.mp/1dca6Z6

Community activity to coordinate public and private resources to achieve a healthier community.

“Orange County’s Healthier Together is a community-wide initiative that aligns public and private resources within the public health system to improve health for allcommunities in Orange County. This initiative is led by the Health Improvement Partnership (HIP). “

Great dashboard to visualize public data.
