CHICAGO and INDIANAPOLIS – January 9, 2018 — On Tuesday, Springbuk and HealthJoy announced a strategic partnership to help organizations take more control over their healthcare costs. This partnership brings together a leading-edge healthcare analytics solution with a state-of-the-art employee engagement platform to help employers and employees alike make better healthcare decisions.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Springbuk and combine their industry-leading health analytics data with our employee engagement platform to directly target unnecessary claims and help companies take control over rising healthcare costs,” said Doug Morse-Schindler, President and Co-Founder of HealthJoy. “We’ve already integrated Springbuk’s data into our member management platform for both inbound and outbound member engagement campaigns. We are now able to identify at-risk employees and initiate a conversation to make sure they are making informed health decisions based on their plan design, network and formulary. Combining real-time claims data with an A.I.-driven virtual assistant to proactively engage consumers regarding important health decisions is the next leap in healthcare.”
“By leveraging our health analytics data within their engagement platform, HealthJoy is giving their self-insured clients greater control over rising healthcare costs,” said Rod Reasen, Co-Founder and CEO of Springbuk. “Our data sets and insights can enable HealthJoy to identify high cost claims before they happen and automate targeted outreach to provide employees with better care. We expect this collaboration to continue to strengthen the results that our clients see in terms of impacting cost trends”
Companies on self-insured health plans that use both Springbuk and HealthJoy will automatically benefit from the integration with no action required on their behalf. Their employees will receive an increase in targeted messaging based on indications of disease to avoid unnecessary costs. They will also receive help from disease and case managers to resolve gaps of care to avoid increased long term healthcare costs.
