MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 23, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Jiff, Castlight’s health benefits platform, today announced it has added three industry-leading digital health solutions to its enterprise health benefits platform: Hello Heart, Whil, and HelloWallet. Castlight’s Jiff Enterprise Navigator brings together best-in-class solutions in a data-driven, beautifully designed experience, enabling employers to provide personalized benefits to their employees and get them engaged in their health. These new offerings will give employers even more options to meet employees’ individual health needs, improving physical, behavioral, and financial health and wellness.
“Every employee has unique health needs, just as every employer has a unique employee population. Jiff allows employers to curate a custom health benefits program from our providers that addresses all of their employees’ physical, behavioral, and financial health needs,” said Derek Newell, President of Castlight. “By engaging employees in personalized, data-driven benefits, Jiff improves employee health and lowers costs.”
Jiff lowers overall costs by allowing employers to deliver smarter and simpler benefit programs personalized for each employee. The Jiff network offers the largest ecosystem of health partnerships on the market. Castlight’s Jiff partners offer digital health solutions to target the most complex employee health challenges and largest drivers of health costs across the nation.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., and the largest preventable health cost for employers. Hello Heart’s cutting-edge technology empowers employees to track, understand, and improve their heart health. Hello Heart’s clinically-based mobile solutions see not only high enrollment rates, but long term retention at 70 percent.
“We’re proud to partner with Jiff, the leading employer wellness platform, and are excited to start offering our services to Jiff clients,” said Hello Heart CEO, Maayan Cohen.
Employee health extends beyond physical wellness. Whil’s scientifically-based, digital wellbeing solution helps employees reduce stress, increase resiliency, and improve sleep and performance. Whil provides hundreds of on-demand programs and 1,250+ sessions through any device to address the largest stress and health-care cost-drivers for companies.
“83% of people report that work is their greatest source of stress, but only 20% of companies have programs to help employees combat stress. Whil’s integration with a world-class partner like Jiff makes it’s easier than ever to help millions of people with resiliency programs based in science, mindfulness and positive psychology,” said Joe Burton, CEO and Founder of Whil. “We are committed to helping companies develop happier, healthier and more engaged employees and we’re thrilled that Jiff shares that commitment by offering Whil through their platform.”
Employers and their employees have a shared interest in making the most of their compensation and benefits. HelloWallet, a wholly owned subsidiary of Morningstar, Inc., provides employees personalized, behaviorally-driven financial guidance about spending, saving, debt, and benefit decisions through web and mobile applications. Additionally, HelloWallet helps employers better measure their programs, assess employees’ needs, and drive improved outcomes.
“HelloWallet’s goal is to democratize access to financial guidance for all Americans. We are excited to work with Jiff to offer forward-thinking employers with a total wellbeing solution for their employees,” said Brock Johnson, President of Global Retirement and Workplace Solutions at Morningstar. “Our combined offer aims to inspire employee’s good health, wealth, and happiness without making them feel helpless or overwhelmed.”
These new Jiff platform providers join the dozens of industry-leading solutions across health categories already on the enterprise health benefits platform. With Jiff, Castlight can offer every employer a benefits platform that fits with their preferred vendors, health benefits design, and unique employee population. With Jiff, employers can control costs and create a happier, healthier, and more productive employee population.
These new agreements follow the recent announcement that Castlight Health, Inc. (NYSE: CSLT) and privately held Jiff, Inc. have agreed to come together to form a single company. The combined entity will offer the most comprehensive health benefits platform in the industry, helping employers, as well as millions of employees and their families, manage their health benefits dollars more effectively.
