Representatives from RedBrick Health will be on hand to demonstrate their innovative health and wellness technologies used by many of the nation’s leading companies to deliver high-impact health and wellness initiatives. The Benefitfocus platform interfaces with RedBrick components that combine consumer experience, powerful professional tools, and a partner ecosystem featuring apps, devices and services to encourage healthier habits and smarter use of healthcare benefits.
