Benefitfocus to Showcase How to Implement Digital Health Care Strategies at AHIP Forum

Jeff Oldham and Sally Vernon will present a new model for helping insurance carriers thrive in the new consumer-driven digital health care world

Chicago – Oct. 13, 2015 – Benefitfocus, Inc. (NASDAQ: BNFT), a leading provider of cloud-based benefits software solutions, will present “How to Welcome Digital Health to the Care Strategy Table” at the AHIP Consumer Experience & Digital Health Forum in Chicago today at 3:15 p.m. BENEFITFOCUS® Benefitstore Vice President Jeff Oldham and Senior Manager Benefitstore eCommerce Sally Vernon to discuss how insurance carriers can implement digital health strategies to better engage consumers. Digital health represents the convergence of medicine, health, information and technology.

“With nearly half of large employers on the Benefitfocus platform offering HDHPs, employees in these plans face new responsibility and risk,” said Oldham. “Digital Health provides access, cost and convenience while complementing the care obtained via their primary care physician.  In addition, digital health is part of a larger strategy to fill the HDHP ‘deductible gap’ that often results as new consumers seek to build their health savings account (HSA) investment, while minimizing their financial exposure based on an unexpected medical issue. As a result, more than ever, carriers need to educate, engage and empower the consumer. Digital health provides this opportunity.”

The team will present digital health strategies and their results including:

  • What’s driving the shift to digital health?
  • How to engage consumers in this new era of digital health
  • Significant components of a successful digital health strategy
