Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Eli Lilly and Company Establish Coalition to Help Improve the Health of Indiana Residents with Diabetes
Date:3/27/2009

Healthy Hoosiers Alliance made up of health organizations from public and private sector; Will work together to implement new approaches designed to achieve better patient outcomes

INDIANAPOLIS, March 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) have joined with five other leading health organizations in Indiana to form the Healthy Hoosiers Alliance with a goal to fill the gaps in diabetes care by addressing health care quality, safety, access and affordability.

The Alliance is spearheaded by Lilly and Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, two organizations with deep roots in the community and a combined 200 years of addressing local health challenges. The Indiana Health Information Exchange, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the American Diabetes Association, the Indiana State Department of Health and Governor Daniels' INShape Indiana are also members of the Alliance.

The Healthy Hoosiers Alliance was conceived in the spring of 2007, when Anthem's parent company met with Lilly in Indianapolis to discuss how the organizations could collaborate and coordinate efforts to measurably improve the health of those living with diabetes.

They agreed that it made sense to begin an effort in their home state of Indiana, where the rate of diabetes is higher than the national average. In 2006 as much as 8.1 percent of Indiana's adult population had been diagnosed with diabetes(1) compared to the national average in 2007 of 7.8 percent(2). The consequences of diabetes are costly. In 2007, the total annual economic cost of diabetes in the United States was estimated to be $174 billion(2).

By the fall of 2007, the Healthy Hoosiers Alliance was chartered, strategies were developed and project teams were formed.
