Anthem acquiring Aspire Health — 3 insights

Anthem will acquire Aspire Health, a palliative care provider.

Here's what you should know.

1. Aspire provides services to more than 20 health plans in 25 states. The company uses an algorithm to identify patients that could use extra support.

2. Once a patient is identified, Aspire reaches out and uses a comprehensive care team to address several factors like symptom management, patient-family communication and advanced care planning and coordination, among others.

3. Aspire was founded by former U.S. Senator William Frist, R-Tenn., and Brad Smith, MD.

Dr. Smith said, "As part of Anthem, we believe we will be able to further scale our model and positively impact the lives of even more consumers and families, making home-based advanced illness care available to patients who need it."
