The current state of care delivery is complex, especially when an individual is forced to juggle multiple health needs for themselves and their families.

Healthcare data integration drives the patient experience and health outcomes
Data penetrates our habits on a daily basis. From our smartphones to our smart homes and smartwatches, as individuals living in the technology boom, we expect data integration in our lives.

A high-performance network approach to population health really works
Prior to 2022, the foundational elements of Embright's philosophy and approach were implemented across UW Medicine Accountable Care Network (ACN). This population included a portion of Washington State Health Care Authority and The Boeing Company employees averaging 40,000 from 2016 through 2019. Significant improvements were achieved in several quality domains that improved the health of patients and related downstream costs.
