Spring 2011 – Unlocking the future of health care

Welcome to this edition of the Innovation Spotlight. This quarter features a decidedly high-tech roster of innovations, including two examples of telemedicine, a new online approval process that speeds access to prescriptions and a mobile phone application that makes it easier to walk our way to better health.

It's hard to overstate how important telemedicine is going to become in the near future, as Americans struggle with a shortage of doctors and as the system copes with 30 million previously uninsured individuals as a result of health reform. Taken together, UnitedHealthcare is demonstrating compelling advances in data and communication technologies for better, more efficient service and better health for everyone.
