White paper: The value of simplicity through integration

At a time when individuals are being empowered with more transparent information and more choice, companies in many industries are looking for ways to become increasingly customer-centric. The same trend has been playing out across health care, as employees are gaining greater access to information and, with it, an opportunity for control of their health care decisions. The full potential of integration takes life in UnitedHealthcare’s singular focus on helping individuals make better choices in all health moments, whether routine or complex.

Supported by teams skilled in health care delivery, UnitedHealthcare’s end-to-end ownership of a whole-health portfolio — from health care benefits to care providers — helps to deliver integrated solutions at scale to employee populations. Integrated medical benefits with specialty (dental, vision and financial protection), pharmacy and behavioral, may create opportunities to diagnose and manage chronic conditions sooner, identify and deploy the most clinically effective treatments, intervene early in behavioral issues, and more.

“Integration positions the client for higher performance to address the persisting challenges in health care of improved affordability, health and a simpler experience,” says Jean-François Beaulé, Executive Vice President, Health Plan Design & Innovation with UnitedHealth Group. “It’s just not about ownership of all components under one ecosystem, but rather a seamless orchestration of those components powered by enriched and secure data on a common connected platform.”
