First-of-its-kind marketplace of health systems wins bronze in Best in Biz Awards 2017
New York, NY, November 29, 2017 – Brighton Health Plan Solutions, a leading health plan management company, today announced that its newly launched product Create has been named a bronze winner for the Most Innovative Product of the Year, Healthcare and Medical category, in the seventh annual Best in Biz Awards 2017. As the first marketplace of health systems in the tri-state area, Create immediately reduces health care costs and increases quality for members and their families. Best in Biz is the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in America.
“The Brighton Health Plan Solutions team is delighted to be recognized among industry leaders whose innovations are addressing the unique needs of today’s health care consumer,” said Simeon Schindelman, CEO of Brighton Health Plan Solutions. “Through Create, we’re transforming the way people receive care by bringing real-life solutions to patients, doctors, and plan sponsors across the tri-state area. We’re ecstatic to see such growing support and recognition for our product and for our mission.”
Through its innovative open enrollment platform, Create allows members to shop for and select a health system as their family’s exclusive health care provider network, which enables them to develop strong, two-way relationships with the doctors and hospitals within their chosen system. These deeper clinical relationships build richer and more comprehensive health care data, which leads to higher-quality care. Because it provides health care systems with patients who will receive all their care and their families’ care within a single health care system, Create directly enables the health systems to immediately offer their services at lower cost during open enrollment and to continuously improve costs over time.
The seventh annual Best in Biz Awards was strongly contested, with more than 650 entries from an impressive array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada. Best in Biz Awards 2017 honors were presented in 65 categories, including Company of the Year, Fastest-Growing Company, Most Innovative Company, Best Place to Work, Support Department, Executive of the Year, Most Innovative Product, Best New Product, App, Event and Website of the Year.
