Enabling a Future with No Barriers to Better Health for Everyone
Founded in 2014, Carrot Health provides consumer insights for each and every individual person in the United States to engage patients and members, close gaps in care, and optimize performance for healthcare payers and provider systems.

Acquisition Drives a New Standard of Care to Improve Whole Person Health
Stakeholders addressing health understand that they must move beyond nationwide lists of resources and the unmet promises of closed-loop referrals with disconnected technologies, and siloed initiatives. The shift to value-based care models to reduce unnecessary health care utilization requires a close-knit network of accountable community-based organizations creating a new type of care team, fulfilling last-mile services.
Carrot Health brings the nation’s largest consumer and health data set, which powers over 500 proprietary predictive models focused on improving health behaviors and outcomes for over 250 million individuals. This adds to Unite Us’ interoperable end-to-end solution, which includes its flagship outcomes-focused national care coordination platform, prediction and enrollment capabilities, and payments products to reimburse community-based organizations for their impact.
Unite Us’ technology and on-the-ground presence in the community, together with Carrot’s person-centered analytics, enable organizations to provide wraparound care and invest in impact together, and address inequities to create new models of care that improve whole-person health. This new type of care reduces burdens for clients, creates a 360 view of a client’s journey, and brings public and private sectors together to analyze and invest in the greatest impacts on health and communities.
With thousands of health and social care providers already working together in Unite Us’ ecosystem, the companies will further drive a new standard of care that identifies where disparities exist, enabling communities to direct targeted investments in social care services that improve health and reduce the cost of medical care. The combination of two category leaders creates the only generational company driving improved health in the community.
“Adding Carrot Health and its outstanding team to amplify our end-to-end solution combines the power of data analytics with our market-leading coordination platform and products,” says Dan Brillman, Co-Founder and CEO of Unite Us. “With our networks that truly track outcomes and address social factors, we will immediately enable our combined partner base of community-based organizations, governments, payers, and providers to accelerate their impact together, leveraging advanced analytics that improve health for their populations and communities.”
