Morgan Health

Improving employer-sponsored health care


 

We believe that better health care is possible for employed populations in the United States.

Today, more than 150 million people get health insurance through their employer, but the health care system often falls short of meeting its full potential. Providers are paid mostly based on volume of services, not outcomes, and they are not compensated for preventing illness or helping patients proactively manage their health. Technology has been slow to improve the quality of care. Half of employees nationally don’t have a committed relationship with a primary care practice. And the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated issues of inequity and insufficient access to care.

Morgan Health’s mission is to accelerate the availability of new care models that improve the quality, equity and affordability of employer-sponsored health care.

Our efforts are focused in three areas:

 

Health Care Innovation

Health Care Innovation

Morgan Health engages providers, carriers and innovators to improve health care outcomes, reduce disparities, and make care more affordable for both employers and employees. We are focused on the 285,000 JPMorgan Chase & Co. employees and dependents, as well as the 150 million people in the United States covered by employer-sponsored insurance.

Our initial focus is expanding access to accountable care, a coordinated health care experience for patients and payments based on outcomes not volume of services. Our approach to accountable care is anchored by robust primary care, access to care where patients need them (in person, virtual, by phone, etc.), a focus on acute and chronic care management, and integration with specialists, inpatient, at-home and rehabilitation care.






 

Morgan Health Ventures

Morgan Health Ventures

Morgan Health Ventures is deploying $250 million of JPMorgan Chase & Co. capital in high-potential companies focused on improving employer-sponsored health care. Current areas of focus include accountable care, virtual and in-home care delivery, care management and coordination solutions, data and analytics proven to improve outcomes and quality.

In August 2021, Morgan Health Ventures made its first investment ($50M) in Vera Whole Health to help scale an accountable care model within JPMorgan Chase & Co. and improve outcomes for its employees. In the coming year, JPMorgan Chase & Co. expects to offer Vera services to its employees and dependents in Columbus, Ohio.









 

Morgan Health Equity

Morgan Health Equity

Morgan Health is committed to ensuring all patients have the same access to outstanding health care, regardless of race and ethnicity. In collaboration with our partners, Morgan Health is taking a data-driven approach to identify and address any existing disparities within our employed population – both in our innovation work, as well as our investments.

In 2022, JPMorgan Chase & Co.  expanded its benefits offering in California to include Kaiser Permanente. Kaiser Permanente will share data, analytics, and insights to help JPMC better understand how different populations experience the care they receive, if they are receiving routine care in a timely fashion and the frequency to which they seek medical care.  This partnership allows us to understand the needs of JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s employees in this region to identify and deploy new ways to coordinate care, as well as measure quality of care data by race, gender, and ethnicity and work to close any equity gaps that may exist.
