Health insurance giant Humana underscored the significance of the role of digital health technology when it launched Humana Studio H in Boston’s Seaport District in 2018. At its conception, Studio H set out to foster tech development in provider workflow development, telehealth, and voice recognition.
Today, Studio H self-describes as “a place where data scientists, software engineers, and healthcare experts come together, combining experience design with emerging technology in order to make people—and populations—healthier.”
Working on a number of fronts, Studio H employs predictive modeling, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. The division is growing fast and currently hiring for more than 50 positions ranging from software engineers to actuaries, AI engineers to contact center engineers, data scientists to business intelligence and informatics analysts.
Collaboration is a core operational mode at Studio H, which has facilities for Humana members, associates, external community members, and industry professionals.
Driven by the need for speed in health tech development, Humana CEO Bruce Broussard said, “Our members want to be connected digitally…. They want to be engaged in their health and take control of their health. We have a very agile orientation to get products out as quickly as possible.”
This commitment to the development of new health technology is essential if we are to meet the growing healthcare challenges in the U.S. and around the world.
