e are having on the medically underserved and uninsured in our region."

Richard Lane, M.D., who leads Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shields State Health Index efforts, says that through partnerships like the one established with Western Kentucky University, Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield will be able to ensure the program are effective in achieving the desire outcomes.

"The guiding measures we have selected for the State Health Index provide a broad snapshot of Kentucky's overall health," said Lane. "The State Heath Index will serve as a tangible scorecard of the most pressing health issues, which will enable us to work with local and state officials and health care providers to design programs that will improve health across our state."

The State Health Index is a companion program to Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield's Member Health Index, an initiative announced earlier this year, through which Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield uses the data it collects on its own members to track its progress in helping to improve the quality of health care they receive as well as health outcomes.

"Together, these innovative programs clearly demonstrate Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield's commitment to measurably improving the lives of its members and the health of its communities," said Angela F. Braly, president and CEO of WellPoint, Inc., Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield's parent company. "Our company has made an unprecedented commitment to improving health on both the member and state levels, and we have set goals that are both ambitious and transparent. We look forward to using initiatives such as the Member and State Health Indices to drive innovation in the industry and help improve health care across the United States."
