Humana names chief digital health and analytics officer

Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), one of the nation´s health and well-being companies, has announced a series of moves designed to advance its capabilities in the areas of technology, digital health and analytics in support of its integrated care delivery model and its ongoing work to develop differentiated health care experiences, the company said.

Humana will establish a center for digital health and analytics, to be known as Humana Studio H, in Boston´s Seaport neighborhood, where it can take advantage of a deep local talent pool and partnerships. Studio H will focus on pioneering new products and services that will then be developed for use across the organization.

To help lead this effort, the company has named Heather Cox to the newly created position of Chief Digital Health and Analytics Officer, reporting directly to Humana President and CEO Bruce Broussard.

In her new role, Cox will be accountable for building Humana´s digital care delivery operations and enterprise analytics. Integrating these critical capabilities across the organization will further accelerate Humana´s move toward differentiated health care experiences.

Humana Studio H will take shape in Boston´s Seaport neighborhood, where Humana has entered into a lease agreement for approximately 40,000 square feet of office space on two floors at 281 Summer Street. The location affords access to the area´s wealth of talent in digital technology, analytics and experience design, in one of the city´s most dynamic neighborhoods. Humana will build out the space using an open floor plan, designed to promote interaction and collaboration, and the company expects to complete the project in the summer of 2019.

Humana is committed to helping medical and specialty members achieve their best health.
