Without trained and educated professionals to deliver care, gains in life expectancies that are possible due to medical research and innovative health technologies would remain only theoretical. Elevance Health, Inc. is responsible for positive Humankind Value, with much of its positive value coming from Economic Value ($30.5 B) and Medical Services ($5.5 B). It creates economic value by offering to consumers goods and services that they value, paying employees for their labor in producing these goods and services, and providing value for shareholders. Positive value from Medical Services includes the impact of an estimated 114,774.2 additional years lived by people worldwide. Downsides for this company are associated with Opioid Abuse (-$3.3 B). Economic Value is attached to this company as a result of its direct business activities. Medical Services and Opioid Abuse are largely consequences of the actions of supply chain partners. This data was compiled as of 4.29.2022 when Elevance Health was still known as Anthem Health, Inc.
