SeeChange Health Solutions, a pioneer in value-based care technology, and Evolution1®, an innovator in healthcare software and payment solutions, today announce a collaboration to provide customers with the first seamless experience across the healthcare continuum. The industry leaders have integrated SeeChange Health Solutions’ clinical behavioral technology platform, FlyWheelSM, with the multi-account reimbursement management capabilities of 1Cloud® by Evolution1®. The combined capabilities provide one-stop access to all the information and services needed to actively manage health.
“It takes a very powerful technology platform to simplify the healthcare system to make it easy for people to get the right care, done right,” said Martin Watson, CEO at SeeChange Health. “Evolution1 and the 1Cloud platform are a perfect fit in helping us further deliver on our vision.”
The newly integrated platforms put members in the driver’s seat to make highly-informed, personal decisions about their healthcare. The prospective clinical needs of each individual are identified real-time, and health improvement is engaged through behavior economic algorithms that are automatically managed through healthcare spending accounts.
“At Evolution1, we believe that impactful health and wellness programs – those that combine the power of prospective health information, the innovation of creative consumer engagement tools, and the ease of user-friendly financial incentives – drive improved health,” said Jeff Young, chairman and CEO at Evolution1. “While it’s the simplest way to lower healthcare costs, it’s also the hardest. SeeChange Health Solutions is making it easier, and we are thrilled to partner with them in their efforts.”
Evolution1 and SeeChange Health Solutions offer their technology and supporting services to the market in a completely customizable, private label format, which enables health plans, third party administrators, and others to offer the combined solutions under their own proprietary brand. For example, Colorado HealthOP is offering the full solution to its members, leading the way with next-generation health and wellness programs tied with insurance coverage and financial incentives, all delivered using a simple, engaging approach that promotes wellness and improves health.
Colorado HealthOP is the statewide non-profit insurance cooperative where the members are the owners of the health plan. As a new alternative to the traditional health insurance model, members have a voice in their healthcare and are rewarded for healthy behaviors. “We are excited with the combined capabilities FlyWheelSM and Evolution1 bring to our members,” said Julia Hutchins, CEO of Colorado HealthOP. “Our members have the information, tools, and services in one spot to manage and improve their health.”
Evolution1, SeeChange Health Solutions, and Colorado HealthOP will host a webinar titled “Wellness That Works” at 1 p.m. CT Tuesday, February 25. Senior leaders from the companies will explore key aspects of successful wellness and health programs that are making a real impact on improving health to create value by reducing health care costs.

But we don’t do it alone. Our network of 500 Partner organizations enables us to deliver our industry-leading solution to 80,000 employer groups and 9,500,000 consumers across the country.

To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
