Reinventing Healthcare

People from all over the world come to the U.S. for medical treatment because of the quality, breadth and advancement of our healthcare system. Yet obtaining access to affordable, transparent, high-quality care remains a challenge for many Americans. With this in mind, Cox Enterprises is working to improve outcomes for patients.

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

How We Do It

Cox Enterprises is already pioneering new healthcare solutions in several areas of our business. By integrating these diverse resources and pursuing new opportunities via innovation, investment and partnership, we can help improve how patient care is delivered.

We began our journey by investing in Iora Health, a modernized primary care model that takes a comprehensive approach to managing the care of people over the age of 65. One Medical bought Iora Health in 2021, and Amazon is now in the process of acquiring Iora Health to make the healthcare experience more accessible and affordable for patients and providers.
