About Embright

We’re building a new kind of network to deliver healthcare as it should be:

  • High-quality care delivered in a way that meets   members where they are
  • Improved partnership and communication between   doctors
  • Unconventional ideas that create not only a better   experience for members, but lower costs all around

All together better.

In a quest to improve the health of our members and communities, we started with a simple question: what’s standing in the way?

The answer that came back time and again: a lack of connection—between doctors caring for the same member; between a member and their own medical information; between employers and knowing what it takes to keep their workforce healthy and productive. As a Clinically Integrated Network founded by UW Medicine, MultiCare Health System and LifePoint Health, we serve communities throughout the Pacific Northwest—with the expertise and passion to solve these issues.

Guided by physician-leaders, Embright is:

  • Increasing collaboration among healthcare teams
  • Improving access to quality care
  • Focused on preventive care and empowering members to improve their health
  • Accountable to performance and financial metrics
  • Reducing costs for members and employers
