Castlight Recognized for Pioneering Health Care Transparency; Enabling Businesses and Employees to Manage Costs While Promoting Better Quality Care
SAN FRANCISCO – November 21, 2013 – Castlight Health, a leader in health care transparency, has been named a winner in The Institute for HealthCare Consumerism’s Eighth Annual Superstar Awards.
The award recognizes companies that excel in executing innovative health and benefit management programs or providing related solutions to organizations. Companies recognized on the list, like Castlight, are providing employees with the decision-making information and support tools they need, along with incentives, rewards and other benefits that encourage personal involvement in altering health and health care purchasing behaviors.
Castlight enables employers to introduce innovative, shopping-based benefit designs that engage employees in their health care choices. By providing individuals with information on the costs and quality of medical services and procedures, employees and their dependents can make more informed health care decisions and save money while receiving better quality care.
“The Institute for HealthCare Consumerism is a highly respected health and benefit management organization, and we’re honored Castlight was selected as a 2013 HealthCare Consumerism Superstar,” said Peter Isaacson, chief marketing officer, Castlight Health. “Health care is one of the few markets where it is difficult to ascertain precise and accurate cost and quality information for a specific test, procedure or episode of care. Castlight is dedicated to changing this paradigm and, in doing so, help employers and their employees make the most of their health care dollars.”
The Institute for HealthCare Consumerism’s annual HealthCare Consumerism Superstars issue honors the best and the brightest individuals, innovative companies, and organizations that are making a difference in the health care industry. This year, 25 of the Superstars in the health care consumerism industry are recognized for their impact in multiple areas of health and benefit management including leadership, implementation of innovative solutions, and plan design.
