I'd like to personally welcome you to our just-launched blog.
This month marks the end of my first year with First Choice Health, and I've been busy gathering insights, building foundations, and collaborating with some amazing teams. I couldn't be prouder of our people here and the work we've done to chart a new era for the organization.
This past year was one of growth for First Choice Health: we're now contracting with more than 100,000 providers; we saw more than 20,000 new members in the fourth quarter of 2018 alone; and with new programs and partnerships on deck, we couldn't be more confident that we're on track for an even bigger 2019.
As I've studied new approaches to healthcare in the workforce, I've been focusing on how simple, practical uses of data can improve individuals' well-being and support healthier workforces. We're going to keep working on ways to help employers improve the flow of information from providers to their employees, so our health system can truly work for each and every individual.
We will have a number of new partnerships and announcements to make in the coming months and you'll be hearing about them right here on the blog.
We hope you'll return to learn more, as we continue to work toward an improved health outlook for our members and our community throughout the year.
