MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RedBrick Health, a leading provider of well-being solutions that empower individuals to improve their health behaviors and make smarter healthcare decisions, today announced it is expanding its relationship with Towers Watson's OneExchange. Towers Watson (NASDAQ:TW) is a leading global professional services company. The OneExchange solution for active employees includes RedBrick Health as an integrated engagement platform.
RedBrick Health began providing integrated well-being services for the OneExchange group solution in January 2015 and will serve an expanded group of employer clients across such industries as hotels, media, retail, healthcare, business services, manufacturing and more for 2016.
RedBrick provides a consistent well-being employee experience across all the group health plans offered on OneExchange. This means employees can choose a plan from any carrier and have a consistent well-being program that carries over year after year. The integrated rewards model provides flexible rewards that can fund employees' health accounts or reward them in other ways. Employees and their spouses or domestic partners are presented with a unique experience that helps them personally manage their health outcomes.
"Having a partner like RedBrick Health in a multi-carrier exchange model enables consumer empowerment and choice to create an optimal employee experience," said Ashok Subramanian, managing director with Exchange Solutions for Towers Watson. "Employers can tailor the incentive program to fit their organizational culture and employees get a high level of support while using their health coverage, including care management to optimize care for those with chronic or catastrophic illnesses."
"We applaud the commitment Towers Watson has made to innovation and leadership in private exchanges," said Dan Ryan, chief executive officer of RedBrick Health. "We are excited to collaborate in creating an exceptional experience for employees and a tightly integrated, cost-effective solution for employers looking to address the dual aims of improved benefit plan performance and stronger employee well-being."
