LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The goal of Humana's Innovation Center is to get people motivated about their health. The new interactive space will allow adults and children to use technology and implement innovative approaches to health and well-being, through games and other state of the art tools.

As health costs continue to rise, Humana says now is the time to start using creative ideas to encourage healthy practices.

"We as patients and as people have known for a long time what it takes to be healthy and yet we are not doing it, so the question is what could we do to actually be a part of people learning and being motivated to have fun while they make themselves healthier," said Mike McCallister, Humana CEO. 

The primary users of the innovation center will be employees and customers of Humana.
