"Our members enjoy 24/7 connectivity to support their total health," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George Halvorson. "From securely emailing doctors, viewing lab results, making appointments, or refilling prescriptions — our new levels of connectivity are available online and via mobile devices. We also are leading the way on improved health as caregivers prescribe exercise as first-line medication, and track activity as a vital sign on our members' electronic health records."
