First Look: EverythingBenefits Taps HealthiestYou by Teladoc

EverythingBenefits, a provider of comprehensive, next-generation benefits technology solutions and services, announced this week its agreement with Teladoc, Inc., the world’s largest and most trusted telehealth provider, to integrate their HealthiestYou’s solution within the EverythingBenefits platform.

This represents the first third-party integration into the EverythingBenefits suite of benefits technology products. As a result, EverythingBenefits’ growing partner distribution network of human capital management (HCM) platforms, payroll service bureaus, benefits brokers and third-party administrators will have access to the Teladoc HealthiestYou telehealth solution and expand their value offering to existing and prospective clients.

If you’re not familiar, HealthiestYou connects patients with board-certified physicians through phone calls, video chats and the award-winning HealthiestYou app to get resolution to their general medical needs, such as cold and flu, upper respiratory infections, pink eye and more.

Shifts in demographics are putting pressure on the demand side of the telehealth market while shortages and lack of access are putting pressure on the supply side. According to Human Resources and Services Commission, 20% of the US population currently lives in areas with insufficient Primary Care Provider (PCP) coverage. The Bureau of Labor statistics also estimates that a 70% increase in Home Care Providers (HCP) will be needed by 2020. Due to these emerging market forces, EverythingBenefits has aligned with Teladoc to deliver telehealth services to its network.

“Our relationship with Teladoc to bring Teladoc HealthiestYou into the EverythingBenefits suite of products is proof-positive that payroll, benefits, and human capital management are converging,” says Rachel Lyubovitzky, CEO of EverythingBenefits. “This integration allows us to deliver a product that resonates greatly with our partners who are looking to expand beyond their traditional offerings.”
