Initial partner offerings reduce complexity and deployment time for employers pioneering innovative strategies in behavioral health, fertility and maternity, and digitally delivered care
May 7, 2018—San Francisco—Collective Health today announced the Collective Health Partner Program, helping employers harness the power of emerging digital health offerings to deliver the best care options to their employees. The program makes it easier and faster for employers to choose, implement, and manage the explosion of targeted care solutions increasingly used to complement traditional health plans.
The first delivery of the Program packages offerings from founding members, including Omada, Lyra, Doctor on Demand, and Ovia Health. These offerings integrate several solutions that help employers quickly address some of the most pressing healthcare issues affecting their people and their companies’ bottom lines, such as behavioral health, maternity and fertility, and streamlined access to providers.
“In today’s employer-driven healthcare economy, companies are forging exciting new care paths that tackle the persistent issues responsible for high healthcare costs and suboptimal outcomes,” said Dr. Rajaie Batniji, co-founder and chief health officer of Collective Health. “While employers are increasingly adopting these solutions, without a common platform to streamline management, quickly assess what’s working, and deliver intelligent, personalized recommendations, they’re drowning in administrative complexities and struggling to engage their people. Imagine a doctor trying to help a patient without access to their health history, or data on treatments’ efficacy, then giving the patient half a dozen possible prescriptions—that’s the state of today’s employers’ increasingly complex healthcare businesses. It’s far past time companies had a holistic technology solution to manage their $1.2 trillion annual spend and seamlessly help their people get the right care.”
The Collective Health Partner Program formalizes the company’s early success incorporating innovative care options into clients’ health plans using its flexible Workforce Health Management System (WHMS). With its WHMS—which gives employers a single platform to: manage eligibility, claims, payments, and invoicing; evaluate what’s working; and engage employees in relevant programs—Collective Health has:
- Integrated more than 60 distinct digital health vendors on behalf of its clients.
- Improved its ability to connect eligible members to relevant programs by as much as 10X.
- Seen a 2-4X increase in some clients’ employee engagement rates in relevant partner programs.
“We’re thrilled to join Collective Health’s Partner Program. It not only allows Omada to more efficiently tap into one of the largest markets in the U.S., employer-sponsored healthcare, it aligns us with other like-minded companies that want to solve some of the biggest issues facing the space—streamlining operations, improving member engagement, and helping people get the care they need, when they need it,” said Sean Duffy, co-founder and CEO of Omada.
