Brighton Health Plan Solutions CEO honored for healthcare innovation and pioneering Create®, the first and only competitive marketplace of healthcare delivery systems in the tri-state area
New York, May 14, 2018 – Brighton Health Plan Solutions, a leading healthcare enablement company, today announced its CEO Simeon Schindelman has been selected for NJBIZ’s Vanguard Series, Leaders in Health Care, which honors 40 outstanding individuals and organizations that have been at the forefront of significant breakthroughs in the healthcare industry. Mr. Schindelman was recognized for his visionary contributions to transform how healthcare is accessed and delivered, which includes the launch of Create® — an innovative medical benefits solution with a proprietary technology platform that immediately lowers healthcare costs, strengthens doctor-patient relationships, and increases care quality in New Jersey.
An industry veteran with more than 30 years of experience, Simeon has dedicated his career to transforming the way people receive healthcare. Having held past leadership positions at Bloom Health, Medica Health Plans and UnitedHealth Group, he built Create to improve healthcare by delivering better care and lowering costs on the east coast.
“I am honored to be recognized among industry leaders who are leveraging innovation to strengthen healthcare in New Jersey,” said Simeon Schindelman, CEO of Brighton Health Plan Solutions. “We built Create to address the persisting issues with our nation’s healthcare system, all while aligning the interests of patients, families, doctors, health plan sponsors, and other stakeholders. Building on our early success with Create, we are eager to continue paving the way for more affordable, personalized, and higher-quality healthcare throughout the State and beyond.”
Through its proprietary, cloud-based platform, Create allows individuals to enroll in an employee health plan and select a single integrated health system from which to receive all their care. Individuals can compare costs, doctors, and locations of all available health systems, or consider the higher-cost traditional open access plan if available, to determine which best suits their needs. Create also enables doctors and patients to form stronger, long-term relationships—resulting in more personalized care. By forging a relationship between patients and the single healthcare system of their choice, Create inserts the sorely missing provider competition needed in the traditionally static healthcare industry— enabling Create to help the most effective healthcare providers to also be the most successful.
Under Simeon’s leadership, Create has established partnerships with leading health systems in the region, including Hackensack Meridian Health, Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, and Saint Peter’s Healthcare System in New Jersey, as well as Mount Sinai Health System and Long Island Health Network in New York, with other New Jersey health systems planning to join in 2019.
