Preventive care to keep you healthy
You’re more than the sum of your symptoms — whether you’re a new mom, a firefighter, or a new mom who fights fires. No matter who you are, you can rely on us to support your total health. Preventive screenings and routine appointments are uniquely designed to catch problems early on, before they get serious. And through your electronic health record, your care team knows when you’re due for screenings and appointments, helping keep you up to date. We’ve got you — the whole you — covered.
Promoting health, not just treating illness
Here’s a look at how your care team collaborates to protect your health:
Automatic preventive care reminders
Tracking exercise as a vital sign
Support for healthy living
See how an automatic reminder turned one member’s routine appointment into a lifesaving intervention.
Comprehensive care when you need it
Along with our commitment to prevention, we’re here for you if you get sick. You get great doctors, world-class facilities, and a proven approach designed to get you healthy.
Your care team has your back
The first few days and weeks after getting diagnosed with something serious is probably the scariest. But it’s also the moment your care team will rally around you to build a personalized plan and guide you on your path back to good health.
Support for ongoing conditions
If you have a condition like diabetes or heart disease, you’re automatically enrolled in a disease management program to help you get it under control. And we start managing your condition right away, with care supported by proven best practices and advanced technology.
