RedBrick Selected by Leading Health Systems to Improve Population Health, Starting With Health System Employees

RedBrick's Health Engagement Platform Serves as a Cornerstone of Employee Population Health Strategies for Leading Health Systems

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - June 14, 2016) - RedBrick Health, a leading provider of technology-enabled enterprise solutions that empower consumers to improve their health behaviors and make smarter healthcare decisions, today announced that over a dozen leading health systems representing over 150 hospitals have recently selected the RedBrick platform to drive health improvement among employees and their dependents. RedBrick's health engagement platform and services enable increased engagement to enhance employee health and to provide a foundation for broad-based population health strategies. RedBrick's flexible technology and services have been tailored to meet the needs of busy care teams in these settings.

RedBrick's customizable platform and behavior-based approach unlock motivation and deliver personalized support, powering engaging well-being programs and enabling more efficient care management. RedBrick is trusted by leading employers and health systems to advance their employee and population health capabilities, including Providence Health and Services, Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health, The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Boston Children's Hospital.

"Healthy health systems recognize the importance of caring for their care teams because healthy and resilient employees are better equipped to deliver high-quality care. Efforts to improve employee health can translate to healthier patients and, ultimately, a healthier bottom line," said Dr. Jeff Dobro, chief medical officer of RedBrick Health.

Dr. Dobro continues, "RedBrick has built a track record of demonstrated outcomes in helping people to form healthier habits, make better choices and be more resilient, resulting in healthier populations. Gaining expertise in achieving broad-based population health results becomes even more critical as health systems navigate from fee-for-service to value-based payments. We are proud to support leading health systems as they make this transition."

RedBrick's platform adds a critical dimension that addresses the entire continuum of care. The platform improves employee engagement and enables behavior change for health systems through:

  • Health coaching and care team consults, designed to meet the unique needs of clinicians and others on the front lines of healthcare delivery.
  • A web and mobile-enabled technology platform that integrates with and drives engagement in a health system's existing programs and resources.
  • URAC-accredited and NCQA-certified health improvement tools and technologies that produce broad-based population engagement and behavior change.

RedBrick also supports health systems with:

  • Dedicated client service and consulting teams that include specialists who understand the unique needs of health systems.
  • A research team focused on defining and publishing best practices in population health, starting with health system employees.

"Much of the longer-term risk to success in value-based care lies under the waterline," adds Dr. Dobro. "RedBrick is helping these organizations address the health of their own employees and dependents by adopting collaborative care models that more effectively engage consumers and address a constellation of behaviors that are crucial to better health and smarter choices."
