Peer-Reviewed Research

Researchers and data scientists at Elevance Health, often in partnership with universities and professional associations, publish data-driven research in journals and present at professional conferences in support of the company’s purpose to improve the health of humanity. These links represent recent peer-reviewed research published from teams with at least one Elevance Health author. 

Through our rigorous research efforts, we can identify emerging trends among our members and care delivery partners. We can evaluate the effectiveness of new benefits, services, and care programs. And we can use those findings to improve member experience, quality, and affordability of healthcare.  Our academic partners value the data and analytic resources within our organization as well as the opportunity to hear from decision-makers in healthcare. 

These studies highlight specific examples of innovation and demonstrate how research differentiates Elevance Health as we transform from a traditional health benefits organization into a lifetime trusted health partner.
