The partnership reflects a shared commitment by both companies to address the challenges of improving quality of care and reducing treatment costs in today's complex and changing health care environment.
"Pairing Humana's clinical expertise and rich, de-identified patient data with Lilly's history and experience across many disease states allows us to maximize the potential benefits for patient care and savings," said
