We Are Embright
Embright is a clinically integrated network (CIN) that connects healthcare purchasers and providers in the design and delivery of healthcare to help members get care on their terms and stay healthy. We build custom value-based programs anchored to the Triple Aim to solve the big problems associated with quality, experience, and cost.
Our mission is to enable collaboration to improve the health of the members we serve.
Embright works with healthcare purchasers who are tired of trying the same-old healthcare strategies and not achieving the results desired for their population ─ costs continue to rise, outcomes do not improve. We help healthcare purchasers elevate their health plan by connecting them directly with providers to build a program that improves outcomes, member experience, and decreases costs.
Our program is anchored to the Triple Aim. The Triple Aim comes from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), an organization focused on improving healthcare in the United States led by a visionary physician, Dr. Don Berwick. The concept of the Triple Aim, originated by John Wittington and Tom Nolan, was the next step in the evolution of health improvement after the publication of the Institute of Medicine "Crossing the Quality Chasm" and its six domains of health care quality. "The goal of the Triple Aim is to improve the health (quality) and experience of populations while reducing costs. This opened the aperture of the conversation of healthcare to include addressing not only the needs of the individual but how to best balance providing care to populations in ways that yield the best quality, cost, and experience outcomes," stated Shawn West, MD, Chief Executive Officer, Embright.
We aim to be the highest-performing provider network and the network of choice for the communities we serve. We achieve this by following our behavioral standards to which we hold ourselves accountable every day, what we call our Embright values.
- Integrity - do the right thing
- Innovation - think outside the box and dare to be unconventional
- Collaboration - team up and create mutual understanding and clarity
- Agility - lean into reality and adapt quickly
- Respect - seek first to understand and embrace culturally competent inclusivity
- Excellence - be your best and inspire the best in others
We were founded by MultiCare Health System, UW Medicine, and LifePoint Health in 2019, officially, but the idea of Embright began back in 2015.
