OAKLAND, Calif., April 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- STRIVE Benefits, the benefits communication platform of choice for thousands of businesses across the country, and American Well, the leading U.S. telehealth provider, today announced over 50 percent utilization of telehealth when offered jointly by the two organizations. Companies across the country in multiple industries are experiencing the benefits of consumer-focused, cost effective, high quality healthcare, delivered via web and cell phone.
"We are delighted that our clients are able to leverage STRIVE and American Well to reduce healthcare costs and enjoy a superior telemedicine experience. STRIVE's one-stop benefits communication platform, working seamlessly with American Well's telehealth infrastructure, enables employees to easily access telemedicine with one click. This is driving telemedicine engagement among our clients to levels far beyond the industry average," said STRIVE's CEO Saravanan Chettiar.
"While telehealth offers the infrastructure to virtually connect and distribute services across large populations, impacting health outcomes and breaking the cost curve requires full-scale employee engagement," said Harry Kim, SVP and General Manager of Population Health at American Well. "Our partnership with STRIVE has demonstrated high utilization, representing 10X adoption beyond that of most employer programs. This is all about improving the health of a workforce to create sustainable competitive advantage."
