Two West Michigan operators of senior living communities are embarking on major projects.

GRAND RAPIDS — A deal with a business unit of national commercial health insurance carrier Cigna Corp. enables Priority Health to offer employers with employees outside of Michigan a far broader care network. 

A massive, 10-year national initiative that includes Spectrum Health seeks to change how patients are cared for in America. The National Institutes for Health’s All of Us Research Program seeks to enroll more than 1 million adults and collect information on their health, environment and lifestyles. The program gives researchers and care providers a vast pool of data on what influences human health. The NIH wants to create a research model that accelerates “precision medicine,” where wellness strategies, medical treatments and disease management programs are tailored to the individual and what works best in each specific case. Spectrum Health is one of two organizations in Michigan along with Detroit-based Henry Ford Health System that is partnering with about 100 groups in All of Us, which begins enrolling participants this summer. Dave Chesla, director of research operations at Spectrum Health, spoke with MiBiz about the research project.
