Reinventing Health Care

Reinventing Health Care

For 120 years, Cox Enterprises has been in the business of building a better future through communications, technology innovation, community investment and a commitment to conservation. The company is taking that commitment a step further by leveraging our deep community ties, strategic partnerships and trusted customer relationships to improve health care. Cox is exploring ways to encourage a more patient-centered business model. One that is personalized, timely and relevant to where you are and what you need, and one that reduces friction and creates a better experience for patients and their families.

At Cox, we’re redesigning the health care journey with the patient’s needs squarely at the center of their care.

Why We Do It

We believe in focusing on people, not diseases. The traditional — largely reactive — approach to health care simply doesn’t address the real problems patients face today. By adopting an open approach to examining the social implications of health, opioid addiction, anxiety, depression and lack of access to care, we hope to reduce the negative attitudes around these issues and more effectively combat epidemics that are plaguing our communities.

We also believe that the most profound work in health care takes place when you empower empathetic caregivers with cutting-edge technologies. Working alongside progressive health care providers, digital health companies and industry thought leaders, we are determined to reduce costs, improve outcomes, increase access, and reduce caregiver burnout.

Lastly, we believe in improving connections between patients and caregivers, and between patients and their families. Strengthening these connections can help patients better manage their health and prevent the onset of chronic diseases; most of which are avoidable when given the proper support.
