Alight added two new companies, Hinge Health and Quit Genius, to its partner network to, in its words, “offer the support and resources today’s workers need to address specific care needs.”
Both Hinge Health and Quit Genius are digital clinics. However, while Hinge Health addresses preventative, acute, chronic and pre-and-post-surgery care for musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions such as back and joint pain, Quit Genius focuses on treating nicotine, alcohol and opioid addictions..@AlightSolutions added two new companies, Hinge Health and Quit Genius, to its partner network to care of specific care needs. #HR #HRTech @HingeHealth @QuitGenius Click To Tweet
The addition of both clinics to the partner network is meant to help employers reduce medical bills since both clinics target specific conditions, Alight said.
‘Happier, Healthier Lives’
Alison Borland, Alight’s executive vice president of wealth and wellbeing solutions, said the diversity of today’s society, and its workforce, means that employers need to provide personalized health benefits to their employees to in order to meet their specific needs. This will enable them and their families to lead “happier, healthier lives and achieve total well-being,” Borland said.
Hinge Health President Jim Pursley said his digital clinic wants to ensure “ease of implementation for employers.” In addition, Pursley said, the collaboration also means that employees can access “clinically complete” MSK care directly from their homes.
For his part, Quit Genius Managing Director Yusuf Sherwani believes that his firm’s smoking cessation program will help employees to get access to evidence-based care no matter their location.
Alight said the Alight Partner Network is part of its “comprehensive strategy” for the Alight Worklife platform, which was launched last year.
Alight recently upgraded its platform by introducing artificial intelligence, data and targeted content. The material covers topics such as health, finances, clinical navigation, retiree healthcare, payroll and wellbeing.
The firm’s upgrade also included features such as clinical integration, program optimization, chatbot enhancements, mobile app development and enhanced content flexibility.
