Ideas That Explore How to Elevate and Advance Health

A Whole Health Story The Evidence Is There: Doulas Improve Maternal Health Outcomes
March 6, 2023
One of the most promising strategies to support maternal and baby health is an approach that has been around for generations: doula care. A certified doula can help mothers communicate with their doctors or midwives; they can ease the stress and physical demands of pregnancy, labor and delivery; and they help new parents ease into what is a significant life transition providing lactation support and referrals to other support services.

A Whole Health Story Hybrid Healthcare: The Benefits of Integrating In-Person and Virtual Behavioral Health Care
March 9, 2023
During the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the delivery of behavioral health care shifted radically along with many other aspects of care delivery. By April 2020, overall virtual care visits had risen to 78 times the utilization of just two months before. The future of telehealth arrived seemingly overnight, and people with mental health conditions and substance use disorders continued receiving vital treatment when in-person care might not have been available.

Health Equity

Health equity is about giving everyone the chance to be as healthy as possible. More equitable healthcare is attainable. However, health inequities impact all of us, causing higher illness and death rates and greater financial strain at both community and national levels. It is imperative we overcome these barriers that prevent better health for everyone. 

A Health Equity Story

The Real Benefits of Achieving NCQA Health Equity Accreditation

Using data-based evaluation techniques and a rigorous dedication to quality, the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is one of the nation’s most respected healthcare quality measurement organizations. Elevance Health has recently demonstrated our dedication to advancing health equity by undergoing NCQA’s first full Health Equity accreditation survey. As a result, 22 of our Medicaid plans are some of the first in the nation to earn a full three-year NCQA Health Equity Accreditation. This brings 93% of our 8 million Medicaid members into an accredited plan, which is an industry first. While many companies can say they are committed to health equity, this accreditation validates we are leaders in doing the work to advance health equity.

We believe everyone deserves access to quality healthcare, clean air, stable housing, transportation, and nutritious food — access that leads to better health. When some of us don’t have equitable access, everyone is affected."
