Healthways' Embrace offering is a platform to integrate multiple sources of data to deliver and support behavior-change-oriented health and wellness services. Healthways said its Embrace platform, which is used by health plans and employer benefits managers, provides health and wellness services to more than 37 million unique members in the United States, and more than 10 million unique members outside the U.S. The system processes more than one billion healthcare data sets per month, including claims, lab, pharmacy, patient monitoring, clinician reported, self-reported, or other input modalities, representing nearly one third of all commercially available healthcare data in the U.S.; and processes a similar volume internationally in support of a global mission. By identifying members at risk for negative health events early, proactive behavior change can be applied, including collaboration with physicians, nurses, clinical specialists, insurers, and pharmacists to address individuals' unique health and wellness needs.
