INDIANAPOLIS and NEW YORK, June 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Springbuk, the nation's leading employer-facing health intelligence platform, today announced a national preferred partnership with One Drop, a leader in healthy lifestyle and condition management programs for employers. Through this partnership, the companies will enable employers to take control of their healthcare costs while at the same time empowering employees to make more informed decisions to live healthier lives.
Springbuk and One Drop share a mutual philosophy — the future of healthcare is about shifting from reactive to proactive, predictive care. As it exists today, the United States' healthcare system is designed to diagnose and treat existing illness rather than prevent the onset of chronic disease. This approach is expensive, often ineffective and perpetuates the acute care paradigm in which individuals are passive recipients of treatments and interventions. One Drop uses big data and advanced AI to offer an affordable, effective, consumer-centric alternative for chronic disease prevention and management.
"We are eager to partner with One Drop with a shared vision to deliver better health through the power of data." said Rod Reasen, Co-Founder and CEO of Springbuk. "Our data sets and insights enable One Drop to identify high-cost claims before they happen and automate targeted outreach to provide employees with better care. Through this collaboration we can both target the areas to manage cost and deliver a best-in-class solution from One Drop to realize those opportunities."
One Drop's unique approach combines personalized one-on-one coaching with AI-powered insights to deliver affordable, effective care to the greatest number of people possible. Proprietary machine learning — powered by health data collected from over 1.2 million One Drop users — generates actionable advice that connects behavior with outcomes to simplify decision making and promote lasting behavior change. The company's industry leading digital diabetes education program was the first ever to be recognized by the American Diabetes Association and has since been expanded to offer programs for pre-diabetes, weight management, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. One Drop's easy-to-use Personal Health Assistant equips program participants with a digital tool to monitor medication, food and physical activity as well as blood sugar, blood pressure, weight, and other health markers.
"At One Drop, we believe the future of healthcare is about empowering people to improve self-care and develop health habits that can be sustained over time." said Jeff Dachis, One Drop CEO & Founder. "With Springbuk, we now have an end-to-end offering that targets the employees who will benefit most from our programs and demonstrates actual cost savings through our integrated reporting. The future of healthcare is available now and we couldn't be more excited to partner with Springbuk to deliver it."
