Impacting Our Members and Communities at a Local Level

In 2015, Humana announced our Bold Goal, a population health strategy to improve the health of the communities we serve by 20% by 2020. Through community, clinical and business integration, we are taking that goal beyond 2020.

“It will take all of us working together to improve population health.”

Clinical Integration

Physicians and clinicians continue to be the most trusted source for care. Therefore, screening for social determinants of health is essential to caring for the whole person - both inside and outside of the clinical setting.

We Are Making Progress

Every year, we continue to learn about new ways to help improve member and community health, build more partnerships across the country, and better scale what works. To measure our progress, we use the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention assessment tool, Healthy Days, to assess the mentally and physically unhealthy days of individuals over a 30-day period.

About Healthy Days

“I believe that Humana is in a prime position to continue to help improve health and Healthy Days. For too long, our industry has been focused on treating disease instead of preventing it, and it’s time for change.”
