March 10, 2016 – Benovate, LLC, a health technology company, announced a partnership with Allied National, Inc., a third-party administrator that manages one of the larger blocks of small-group self-funded employee benefit plans in the nation. The partnership will allow Allied to offer personalized, HIPAA-compliant member engagement, health incentive and risk management services to approximately 15,000 members and their dependents nationwide via Allied’s Member Connection platform powered by Benovate.

“The future of health care engagement is using technology to foster access to appropriate levels of care in an ‘on demand’ fashion,” stated Bill Ashley CEO of Allied National Insurance. “Much like we now have video on demand, we're going to have health care on demand through smart mobile applications. This will move the first stage of care out of the doctor's office, urgent care clinic or emergency room to the convenience of immediate access to a provider with the appropriate skill level,” continued Ashley.

Members in the Allied pool will gain a one-stop “smart” portal for video medicine, wellness program engagement, health management, risk information and health incentives. The platform surfaces relevant resources tailored for each individual user. Member Connection, powered by Benovate, enables employers, local communities and organizations to take a proactive approach to individual health.

“Allied has a well-deserved reputation for forward thinking,” said Mike Reier, Benovate founder and CEO. “In addition to that, they truly care about the employers and members in their pool. With our shared values and goals, Benovate and Allied will be a powerful partnership.”

Benovate Launches Benovate Connect Platform

Benovate announces today the release of an innovative platform that gives members the power and incentives to change their health.

Minneapolis, MN — November 16, 2015 — The Benovate Connect Platform is an integrative platform that brings health engagement, management and incentives directly to our members in order to engage and improve health. The United States spends nearly three trillion dollars annually on healthcare, seventy percent of which is preventable. Benovate empowers employers and employees to improve their health by unifying the fragmented health data, incentives, benefits and activities into a single place where members can engage in their health and be rewarded for doing so.

“The industry has been trying to affect healthcare costs by solely focusing on premium costs and benefit offerings when in reality the root of these escalating costs are due to disconnected and minimal attention to actual health care. Benovate is shifting the focus and bringing care to the forefront, educating and empowering members to make true and lasting changes to their health.”

- Michael Reier, Founder & CEO
