SeeChange Health Insurance Enables Bay Area Members to Use Health Incentive Dollars to Join One Medical Group

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SeeChange Health Insurance, a provider of value-based health plans to employers, has teamed up with One Medical Group to offer primary care services to SeeChange Health members. One Medical Group is an innovative primary care practice with multiple Bay Area locations throughout San Francisco, Palo Alto and Larkspur, including a Burlingame office opening in November.

SeeChange Health offers innovative benefit design solutions that reward members with health incentive dollars for taking simple preventive health actions. Through this collaboration, health incentive funds can be used to pay for annual membership to One Medical Group -- providing members with access to comprehensive, accessible, and affordable primary care services.

"Our health insurance products are designed to encourage utilization of high-value medical services," said Martin Watson, CEO of SeeChange Health. "One Medical Group offers accessible, best-in-class service to patients and aligns exceptionally well with our model where preventive and primary care are paramount." As a health plan, SeeChange Health rewards individuals who proactively manage their health. Health incentive dollars are given to plan participants when they complete a personalized Health Action Plan, consisting of an annual wellness exam, a health questionnaire, and a biometric screening (basic lab tests). Now, Bay Area members have the opportunity to complete health actions with the help of One Medical practitioners.

One Medical Group has built a successful primary care model around the needs of patients – including same-day appointments that start on time, more time with physicians, and mobile and online tools that help support health needs. One Medical doctors offer a comprehensive, integrative approach that starts with getting to know the patient, their concerns and helping them achieve their goals for good health.  

"Like SeeChange, One Medical believes that a proactive approach to health care starts with doctors and patients having an open and honest discussion about their goals," said Dr. Jeff Levin-Scherz, Chief Medical Officer for One Medical Group. "SeeChange members already understand the financial value of taking steps to maximize their health. Now members in the Bay Area have better access to primary care that is built around their schedules and designed to tackle their health questions and get them back to enjoying life."

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service?

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself?
