CHICAGO, IL – August 12, 2015 – Today, Jellyvision, the company behind ALEX, the most engaging employee communication platform in the universe*, and San Francisco-based Castlight Health, the leader in enterprise healthcare management, are pleased to announce their new partnership. The two companies join forces to provide employees an end-to-end decision support platform for their healthcare choices while helping benefit leaders rein in costs and improve engagement.
The Castlight Enterprise Healthcare Cloud (EHC) is a platform and integrated suite of applications from Castlight and others that enable employers to lower costs and improve benefit satisfaction. It empowers employees with the information they need to make informed healthcare decisions and better manage their healthcare benefits. More than 170 companies across 25 industries have selected the Castlight EHC to maximize their investments in employee health and wellness, eliminate waste, and eradicate unnecessary spending. Additionally, over 40 applications are already running on the Castlight cloud platform.
