We are creating innovative partnerships with academic institutions to meet the needs of 21st century patients.
The Humana Integrated Health System Sciences Institute at the University of Houston was created to advance population health, improve health outcomes and expand the use of value-based payment models.
This strategic partnership focuses on creating new initiatives to improve the whole health of individuals in Jacksonville and Northeast Florida by addressing health-related social needs.
First-of-its-kind training available on Coursera to equip the public with foundational, real-world understanding of value-based care, Humana and the University of Houston announced the launch of a Value-based Care Specialization online program to support providers, academia and other business and industry professionals and the public in learning about the fundamentals and real-world application of value-based care that has become integral to improving outcomes in health care.
“The Humana Institute is a key resource in redefining the way physicians, nurses, optometrists, pharmacists, social workers and other health professionals learn and train in their disciplines and put the patient at the center of care. The healthcare industry is quickly changing, and academic institutions have a key role in preparing medical professionals to have the most innovative and current training for their field. When we align our collaboration and training to support the realities facing practitioners today, we will see better health outcomes in our communities.”Dr. LeChauncy WoodardDirector of the Humana Integrated Health System Sciences Institute
