Anthem and Castlight Team Up to Launch Engage

Posted October 19th 2017 by John Doyle

I am excited to share that today Anthem announced Engage, an integrated digital health platform, developed in collaboration with Castlight. Engage helps Anthem members navigate their health care by creating a personalized experience using data from their employer health plan and benefits program, clinical claims, and information from their connected health and wellness apps. At launch, already more than twenty large customers across the country have signed up for the platform.

Anthem and Castlight have a long-standing relationship. The reason we are so well-suited to work together is that Anthem shares our commitment to providing an engaging healthcare experience that makes it easy for people to take control of their health care.

Engage, which will be available to all of Anthem’s large groups, offers members access to a single mobile and web platform that brings together all of their health and benefits information, as well as personalized insights and guidance throughout their entire health journey.

As Brian Ternan, president of commercial business at Anthem Blue Cross, put it, “Rather than contending with a myriad of one-off digital offerings that address only small portions of their health benefits and healthcare or fitness data, Engage brings together an individual’s health and benefits into one location, empowering employees with information and support for better health and better health care decisions.”

Perhaps one of the most exciting parts of this innovation is that the wellness aspects of Engage will be open to all of a company’s employees, whether or not they are enrolled in the benefits plan. This empowers employers with a way to engage 100 percent of their employee population in their health and wellness.

For Castlight, this is early validation of our strategy to broaden our platform to address the entirety of a company’s employee population and to accelerate our platform’s adoption through channel relationships.

Today’s news is a significant step toward fulfilling our mission to make it as easy as humanly possible to navigate healthcare and live happier, healthier, more productive lives. Engage will make this a reality for more employees across the country, and we believe we are just getting started on this journey.
