Elevance Health’s Gail Boudreaux to Keynote CES 2024

The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) announced Gail K. Boudreaux, president and CEO of Elevance Health, will headline a keynote session to discuss how the company is implementing an innovative whole-health approach to care. It complements the Digital Health Summit, which returns to CES 2024, and will focus on the outlook for health care in the U.S. and beyond.

One of Fortune’s 100 Most Powerful Women in Business, Boudreaux’s work at Elevance Health focuses on transforming the organization from a traditional health benefits company into a lifetime trusted health partner committed to improving lives and communities, simplifying health care, and building trust with consumers. Regarded for her ability to scale multi-billion-dollar businesses, Boudreaux leverages more than three decades of healthcare industry experience to helm Elevance Health (including the Anthem, Wellpoint, and Carelon brands), one of America’s largest healthcare companies.

“Innovation is at the heart of progress, especially in health care, and Elevance Health’s journey in leveraging digital technologies to make health care more proactive, predictive and personalised has been transformational,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CTA. “CES 2024 will be a catalyst for groundbreaking ideas and technologies that will shape the future of this vital industry.”

“Our whole-health approach is about simplifying health care and building trust with customers,” said Boudreaux. “Digitally enabled health care means building digital technologies into the fabric of our ecosystem to improve outcomes and enhance efficiency in day-to-day health and wellness.”
