Dan Hilferty, CEO of Independence Blue Cross, is at the forefront of innovation in the health insurance industry.
“You’re really innovating,” Matthew Cabrey, executive director of Select Greater Philadelphia and senior vice president for the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia, told Hilferty during a discussion at Independence LIVE. “And you’re inspiring your team to think differently and be empowered to come up with solutions that, maybe 15 years ago, wasn’t the mindset of a corporate health insurer.”
Hilferty said a key aspect of Independence’s evolution that helped it grow to serve more than 8 million people is its commitment to reimagining healthcare delivery. The insurance company has driven transformation through innovative partnerships and community engagement.
He said that part of that commitment is collaboration with community events and organizations with missions that align with Independence. These include its joint venture with Comcast and its results-driven collaboration with Penn Medicine.
“It’s part of our mission to focus every day on the individual, the family, the community,” said Hilferty.
