Simplify the business of healthcare. It's what we do, and it's what our Partners do. We're excited to announce a partnership with SeeChange Health Solutions to provide its members one-stop access to all the information and services they need to actively manage their health.
Here's what Martin Watson, CEO at SeeChange Health, has to say about the new relationship: "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. Evolution1® and the 1Cloud® platform are a perfect fit in helping us further deliver on our vision."
The right care, done right. We like that. After all, isn't that how healthcare should be? Learn more at our upcoming webinar titled "Wellness That Works" at 1 p.m. CT Tuesday, February 25. Register here.
What a great start to 2014: 1Mobile by Evolution1® has been named one of the best mobile products of the year in the 2013 Mobile Star Awards™ program. This is the second consecutive year 1Mobile has been named a “Shining Star” in the competition. Great stuff!
Another shining star is Evolution1 Partner Benefit Strategies, LLC. For Benefit Strategies, 1Mobile is THE mobile solution. “The solution is so user-friendly and intuitive,” says Bethany Smith, executive vice president at Benefit Strategies. “The most common question people have is ‘what’s my account balance?’. With 1Mobile, they can quickly find the answer on their phone or tablet.”
Bethany notes that just as consumers got comfortable with performing banking functions from their phones or tablets, they are getting more and more comfortable in taking care of healthcare paperwork from their mobile devices. Indeed: on January 1, 2012, Benefit Strategies had 3,885 1Mobile account holders. Today that number is 11,509 and growing, as is the total of 102,500 log-ins. More great stuff!
Thank you to Benefit Strategies and all our Partners who help us deliver on our vision to simplify the business of healthcare. Here’s to a great 2014!
Yesterday was a very big day: HSAs turned 10 years old! That’s right, 10 years old: HSAs were established as part of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act signed into law by President George W. Bush on December 8, 2003.
We’re excited to sponsor an exclusive dinner event tonight, hosted by The National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA), to celebrate the occasion. Our own Chris Byrd and Jeff Bakke will attend the elite event.
“HSA enrollment continues to rise because of companies like Evolution1,” said John C. Goodman, president of the NCPA. “We’re thrilled to recognize the efforts of Evolution1 and its Partners tonight for they are the reasons behind the successes of HSAs.”
Thank you, John, and happy birthday, HSAs! And thank you to our Partners for helping us strengthen and build on our HSA industry leadership. You can read the full press release here.
