INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Healthx, Inc., the leader in cloud-based digital engagement solutions for healthcare payers and other stakeholders, and CieloStar, a leading nationwide healthcare benefits distribution and payment technology company, announced a partnership to offer CieloStar’s enrollment capabilities on the Healthx member engagement platform. Healthx officials state this is part of a larger integrated partner solution strategy to bring more robust, comprehensive solutions to its customers.
The Healthx Enrollment Solution is pre-integrated on the Healthx platform. Third Party Administrators (TPAs) and commercial health plans that purchase this solution can expect to see significant cost reductions while streamlining operations, according to Sean Downs, CEO of Healthx. “Managing eligibility and the entire benefits administration process can be an administrative nightmare when dealing with medical claims, flexible spending accounts, COBRA and other offerings. This is now simplified with a seamless system that ties these benefits together in a unified tool to manage employee benefits from hire to separation.”
Downs said employees and members will also value the solution. “Trying to navigate through multiple benefits systems and programs can be downright confusing for the member,” said Downs. “We simplify this by automating the benefit administration process into a single platform with all the tools the member needs, such as their payer medical plans, COBRA, flexible spending account, health spending account, and so on. It can be a real challenge, but by unifying these functions into a single-source tool, we’re making healthcare easier for the member.”
CieloStar says the partnership is a natural fit with their capabilities. “The demands on payers to increase member engagement while reducing costs and improving the overall health of their members are increasing every day, and Healthx is literally a pioneer in unifying information for payers, members and providers,” said William Mehus, chairman and CEO of CieloStar. “The objective of unifying systems into a seamless experience is at the core of our capabilities, and we’re excited to partner with a like-minded organization.”
This partnership marks the first in several new offerings Healthx is planning to roll out this year. “CieloStar fits perfectly into our integrated partner solutions strategy,” said Downs. “We recognize that TPAs and commercial health plans need to provide more robust self-service tools for their members to manage their own healthcare. To that end, we have set a course to partner with some of the most innovative engagement providers and wrap these capabilities into one very powerful solution to empower people to improve their own healthcare while making our customers more efficient and competitive.” Downs concluded, “We are very excited about our relationship with CieloStar, and to share more offerings in the coming months, which will be a game changer in member engagement.”
