Castlight Health Announces the Addition of Three New Clinical Advisors
Mar 4, 2021
SAN FRANCISCO – April 4, 2014 – Castlight Health commends the announcement by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services that physician payment data will be issued as early as April 9.
“The release of the Medicare physician payment data by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is an important moment in the effort to dramatically improve the efficiency of the American healthcare system. It is a welcome step in the right direction. However, it is far from sufficient to address the lack of timely, clear, actionable data needed by employers and employees to effectively manage their healthcare expenditures,” said Giovanni Colella, M.D., co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Castlight Health.
Colella continued, “Increased transparency has a direct benefit on consumers’ healthcare decisions, financial circumstances, and health outcomes. Castlight Health research and data from our employer customers supports the proposition that the better data we can provide, the better those healthcare decisions can be. Employers will also benefit from this action, as it furthers the national movement towards value-based healthcare.”
