Castlight Health Mobilizes Enterprise Healthcare Cloud Ecosystem

Today Castlight Health®, Inc. (NYSE: CSLT) announced many key participants in the Castlight Enterprise Healthcare Cloud ecosystem, comprised of data, technology, service, and solution providers from across the healthcare industry. Castlight’s ecosystem is continually expanding to meet the needs of the company’s large employer customers. Companies interested in joining the ecosystem can integrate their offerings and data with the Castlight Enterprise Healthcare Cloud via Castlight Connect and the Castlight Data Interchange.

Castlight Connect integrates third-party solutions to enable employees to discover and access services such as on-site clinics, telehealth, Health Savings Account (HSA) providers, and more. Deploying this Castlight Solution Center empowers businesses to move away from a fragmented set of underutilized vendor programs to providing a “one stop shop” for employees. Employees can then better take advantage of these resources when they need them, thereby increasing the programs value to the employee and return on investment to the employer.

Castlight Connect enables integrations with partners across the healthcare ecosystem including telehealth providers such as Teladoc, Doctor on Demand, and LiveHealth Online; expert opinion services such as Grand Rounds and WorldCare; HSA providers such as ConnectYourCare and HealthEquity; and on-site clinic providers such as OurHealth. Castlight Connect also has integrations with advocacy services, wellness solutions, decision support applications, and appointment scheduling solutions.

“Castlight’s relentless focus on creating a merit-based healthcare market makes them the perfect partner for Grand Rounds,” said Owen Tripp, CEO of Grand Rounds. “We both believe that everyone should have access to affordable, high-quality medical care – and that the combination of quality and transparency in regards to medical costs and providers can drive costs down and quality up. We look forward to delivering outstanding healthcare outcomes to the customers of the Castlight Enterprise Healthcare Cloud."

Castlight Data Interchange brings together external data from the entire healthcare ecosystem and combines it with internal data generated from use of Castlight applications. The Castlight Data Interchange relates medical, pharmacy, and dental claims, provider directories, national, and regional quality data, employer and employee information, and other healthcare related data in a single database. The Castlight database already includes more than one billion healthcare claims and is a source for generating actionable analytics.

The Castlight Data Interchange has more than 30 secure, reliable connections to leading organizations in the healthcare ecosystem. Data Interchange participants include four of the five national health plans such as Cigna and WellPoint; more than 20 regional health plans such as Premera Blue Cross; top quality organizations such as Consumer Reports, The Leapfrog Group, and MN Community Measurement; prominent lab and diagnostic service providers such as Quest Diagnostics; and the leading Pharmacy Benefits Managers (PBMs) including CVS Caremark.

"WellPoint is committed to advancing cost and quality transparency for our members and customers," said Ken Goulet, president and CEO of WellPoint’s Commercial and Specialty Business Division. "Last year, we entered into an industry-first agreement with Castlight to address this very goal through a joint partnership to expand our transparency offering for Reference Based Benefits. We trust Castlight to securely and thoughtfully represent our Reference Based Benefits offering. We continue working together to identify additional ways to serve our shared employer customers."

Castlight also works in close partnership with leading professional services and consultants such as Towers Watson.

“Castlight is mobilizing the entire ecosystem of data, technology, service, and solution providers with the Castlight Enterprise Healthcare Cloud,” said Giovanni Colella, M.D., co-founder and CEO of Castlight Health. “We want to make it simple for our partners to integrate with the Castlight Cloud and serve American businesses seeking first-class healthcare offerings.”
