BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Buoy Health (www.buoyhealth.com),
a health technology company that develops AI-powered digital health
solutions that empower people to effectively manage their own health and
health care options, has expanded its digital Corporate Health &
Benefits program offering to include the specialized expertise from
digital health solutions and strategic partners CirrusMD,
Healthcare
Bluebook
, Hinge
Health
, LetsGetChecked
and Workit
Health
.

“Today’s digitally connected employees want to leverage technology to
self-manage their care and navigate their care options. The Buoy
platform puts them in the driver’s seat with the relevant data and
services to help them feel better. This reduces the stress and anxiety
that comes with managing any health issue,”
states Dr. Andrew Le,
CEO of Buoy Health. “Through the Buoy Health & Corporate Benefits
program, employees can manage their health and take control over their
healthcare options from navigating symptoms to recommended next steps to
connecting with experts. Partnering with leading health solution vendors
gives employees direct access to very specialized areas of healthcare
through the Buoy platform, making it a one-stop shop for self-care and
long-term chronic care. It’s a robust Health & Corporate Benefits
program that fosters a healthier and happier workforce.”

Buoy Health, an AI-powered platform that analyzes symptoms, facilitates
first-line triage and makes recommendations for next-step medical
treatment, leverages the deep knowledge of its strategic digital
healthcare solution partners to further promote workplace wellbeing for
employees. Specialized programs offered through Buoy Health include
addiction treatment from Workit Health, chronic pain management from
Hinge Health, and general self-testing from LetsGetChecked. Integration
with CirrusMD’s virtual care delivery platform connects users to ongoing
chat conversation with a dedicated physician in 60 seconds or less and
transparency tools from Healthcare Bluebook provide price and quality
information to help consumers make smarter healthcare choices.

“Smart, engaging digital health solutions offer the promise of
helping consumers replace their traditional, often high-cost default
options with more convenient and often more appropriate forms of care.
Users feel more in control of their healthcare choices while better
costs and outcomes can be achieved, and traditional care solutions can
be focused where they work best. Everyone wins!”
says Steve
Blumenfield, Senior Director, Strategic Opportunities and Alliances,
Willis Towers Watson Health and Benefits.

Dr. Blake McKinney, Chief Medical Officer of CirrusMD further elaborates
on the benefits: “By putting instant access to human conversation
with a doctor right at the fingertips of employees, we’ve been able to
lower costs, reduce absenteeism and ultimately decrease premiums for our
partners. The best part of using CirrusMD is that employees can chat
with a doctor asynchronously, which means they don’t even have to leave
their desks to access care.
We’re excited to work with Buoy
because we believe that they are best-in-class for interaction with a
non-human resource for clinical self-discovery.”

Dr. Le concludes that Buoy Health will continue to expand its corporate
benefits programs with new services and providers: “The digital
health solutions partnerships announced today are the first step in
expanding our Health & Corporate Benefits program. Over the coming year,
we will add new digital health solutions providers and continue to
leverage the wealth of user-generated medical data to help people take
control of their health and get on the right path to recovery.”
