Today, the Nashville Health Care Council hosted Bruce Broussard, president and CEO of Humana, for a discussion on Humana’s strategic approach to health care through their concentration on innovation, technology and well-being.

At the briefing, Broussard shared the company’s plans for continued growth and member engagement while operating under the new standards of the ACA.

“At Humana, we believe in an integrated model of three components: a delivery system in which we will have created relationships with primary care physicians and providers based on incentives of quality and cost; a member experience that encourages people to have active involvement in their health care; and the integration of systems with clinical analytics and consumer data,” said Broussard.

Under Broussard’s leadership, Humana is creating a care delivery model that is expected to drive lower costs, enhance quality, improve outcomes and offer better member experience.

The Council’s members continue to lead the way in setting trends and implementing industry improvements that are later seen across the country. As one of the nation’s leading managed care organizations, we are very interested to hear from Bruce on Humana’s integrated care delivery strategy,” said Caroline Young, Council president.
