Whole Health is a vision of the health care system that continuously supports and improves our overall health rather than intervene episodically only when we are sick. Whole Health encompasses everything from foundational socio-economic factors, to care coordination across care providers, to chronic care management, to financial and emotional well-being.

We believe that health begins long before we get sick or visit our doctor – where we are born, live, learn, work, and play are the foundation for health, quality of life outcomes and overall well-being.




Anthem seeks to transform healthcare by addressing the following challenges: 

  • Social Determinants of Health
  • Behavioral Health
  • Chronic Condition/Disease Management
  • Consumer Engagement

How will this help entrepreneurs?

All startups accepted into the accelerator will have the opportunity to work with Anthem and innovative, leading employers. These offers will outline support for startups to accelerate development and/or validation of their solutions.
