Anthem, Eli Lilly partner to research health outcomes

Anthem, Eli Lilly and HealthCore--Anthem's analytics and research subsidiary--have formed a five-year collaboration to research ways to improve health outcomes and address gaps in care. The firms will develop joint research projects that span disease states and incorporate clinical trial data and "real-world evidence" from providers and patients. The aim is to get outcomes data into healthcare providers' hands faster, as it can take as long as 17 years for research evidence to make it into clinical practice. Announcement
