We believe in creating a new reality—
healthcare you can trust.
Healthcare is a deeply personal part of all of our lives. It touches each and every one of us profoundly, through our parents, our children, our friends and family, and our personal well-being. Whether we are investing in our long-term health or battling the most serious chronic disease, we want to know that we are trusting providers that have demonstrated clinical excellence, delivered the most successful outcomes, and ensured our friends and family are cared for in the most evidence-based manner. By achieving these goals, we all benefit from a more efficient and cost-effective healthcare marketplace.
But these goals run counter to what we see today. Large institutions benefit greatly from the current, deeply flawed system. Fee-for-service models still dominate the marketplace, prescription and specialty drug costs continue to soar, and members are left trying to navigate the healthcare landscape with little to no information to guide them. How can we trust the institutions that created the status quo to change it? They are the largest beneficiaries of the environment we have created, and their bottom lines drive their behavior.
Imagine Health refuses to accept the status quo, and we invite you to join the uprising. Employers are going to take the power back and forge lasting relationships with the health systems caring for their people. We are going to reward the providers that deliver the highest quality care in the most efficient manner, while ensuring employers are directing their members to only the facilities and physicians that can demonstrate sustained clinical excellence. Together, we are going to rip this healthcare system open at its core, and we are going to change America forever.
Can you Imagine this new reality? We can—and it's already here.
