Healthcare-Anthem Research Network Research Summary
Investigator: Kevin Haynes, PharmD, Healthcore
Purpose: HealthCore is the research subsidiary of Anthem, Inc. with clinical and scientific research expertise, and exclusive access to a robust, integrated research environment containing information on nearly 60 million individuals from Anthem health plans across the U.S. Though Anthem has membership in all 50 states, membership is primarily concentrated in the 14 states with geographic distribution in the Northeast (Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, and New York), Midwest (Indiana, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin), South (Georgia, Kentucky, Virginia), and West (California, Colorado, and Nevada).
The HealthCore Anthem Research Network (HCARN) will advance the PCORnet mission to improve the nation’s capacity to conduct clinical research by creating a large, highly representative, national patient-centered network that supports more efficient clinical trials and observational studies. We will achieve these aims by closing the gaps in data to support a Learning Health System (LHS) to address both gaps in evidence and gaps in care. This LHS will advance the quality of care Anthem delivers to its members and provide real-world evidence to patient-centered research.
