Hunt Valley, MD (PRWEB) April 30, 2014 -- ConnectYourCare, a national leader in consumer-directed healthcare (CDH) account solutions, today announced a partnership with Castlight Health (NYSE: CSLT), a leading provider of cloud-based software for healthcare. With this partnership, ConnectYourCare’s health savings account (HSA) data will be integrated into Castlight’s Enterprise Healthcare Cloud technology platform, providing ConnectYourCare mutual customers and members access to all the benefits of Castlight. With Castlight, employers can better manage enterprise healthcare spending and employees and their families can better manage their healthcare costs; search for highly qualified, cost-efficient providers and services; and make decisions that enable them to get maximum benefit from their health savings accounts (HSAs).
“We believe that everyone deserves affordable healthcare, and lowering costs through health savings accounts and healthcare transparency are essential components of the equation,” said Dan Stachura, ConnectYourCare’s Vice President for Solutions Engineering. “The integration of ConnectYourCare’s solution with Castlight’s Enterprise Healthcare Cloud couples these essential elements into one powerful, simple and straightforward technology platform which benefits employers, employees and their families.”
