SpendWell Health Wins Three Fierce Innovation Awards

December 16, 2015

PORTLAND, Ore. SpendWell Health, the market leader in health care e-commerce and a digital health success platform, has been awarded in three categories in this year’s Fierce Innovation Awards: Payer Edition, an awards program from the publisher of FierceHealthPayer and FierceHealthcare.  SpendWell was recognized as a “Best In Show” winner, FierceHealthPayer’s most prestigious award, in the category of Cost Savings. SpendWell also won in the categories of Digital Solutions and Financial/Operational Solutions.

The Fierce Innovation Awards recognize pioneering technologies and solutions that will catapult the health payer industry into exciting new realms. Finalists were chosen by a distinguished panel of executives from major health plans.

All applications were evaluated based on the following criteria: technology innovation, financial impact/value, competitive advantage, member experience/member outcomes, market need, and overall fierceness and innovation. Finalists were selected based on calculation of the judges’ scores in each area.

“The Fierce Innovation Awards is an annual year-end focal point for payers, and the health care industry at large, and SpendWell is humbled to be included in the prestigious company of past and present winners,” said Marcee Chmait, president of SpendWell. “SpendWell looks forward to building upon this recognition from FierceHealthcare and our reputation of innovation in Digital Health and Financial/Operational solutions by expanding our delivery of a real-time platform and retail-oriented online shopping experience with known provider prices to health plans, employers and consumers in 2016.”

SpendWell’s benefits-integrated e-commerce marketplace is a health care shopping platform that inspires consumers (defined as individual plan members, group plan members and employees) to shop, compare and buy health care products and services directly from providers. SpendWell empowers consumers by giving them “buy now” capabilities and known provider pricing, and also provides them with information on provider benchmark comparison pricing, embedded telehealth services, member reviews, and personalized health benefit information. SpendWell creates a real-time, rational and sustainable health care marketplace.
