On April 11, 2011 we announced that three leading businesses within the health services industry would be unifying and simplifying their presence under a single brand—Optum. These distinct businesses—Ingenix, one of the largest health information, technology and consulting companies; OptumHealth, the leader in population health management serving the physical, mental and financial needs of both individuals and organizations; and Prescription Solutions, the specialist in the delivery, clinical management, and affordability of prescription medications — possess a unique combination of capabilities designed to enable a health care system that can work better for everyone.
Over the course of the coming weeks and months, these three businesses will transition to new Optum business names: Ingenix will become OptumInsight, OptumHealth will maintain its name, and Prescription Solutions will become OptumRx (with their Pharmacy Benefits Management services continuing to use the current Prescription Solutions name.)
All of the businesses of Optum will continue to be distinct in the markets they serve, while they also collaborate to solve some of the most pressing issues facing the health industry today and tomorrow. By coming together more explicitly, we seek to serve our clients based on their needs– whether it is a comprehensive solution that draws from the combined strengths of our Optum businesses, or a critical point solution offered by OptumInsight, OptumHealth or OptumRx.

As an independent non-profit organization, we accomplish this by raising private funds and creating public-private partnerships to support the mission of the National Institutes of Health (NIH): conducting scientific research…to extend healthy life and to reduce the burdens of illness and disability.
The partnerships we create combine the expertise and resources of NIH with those of industry, the public and philanthropic communities, sparking research that is more innovative, collaborative, complex, and efficient than ever before. We are recognized as the number-one medical research charity in the country—leveraging support, and convening high level partnerships, for the greatest impact on the most urgent medical challenges we face today.
