Alegeus Launches New Podcast: Creating Healthier Futures with Alegeus
Published on October 6th, 2020
Waltham, MA — Oct. 7, 2020 — Alegeus, the market leader in consumer-directed healthcare (CDH) solutions, today launched a monthly podcast series titled Creating Healthier Futures with Alegeus. Hosted by Brian Colburn, SVP of corporate strategy at Alegeus, and Anna Lyons, director of HR at Alegeus, the podcast will feature data-rich discussions among experts about the healthcare consumerism industry.
The health benefits space has had a year unlike any other,” said Steven Auerbach, Alegeus CEO. “The Creating Healthier Futures podcast not only addresses the new challenges we face, but also furthers our enduring mission as a company: to help people navigate the U.S. healthcare system by guiding them to the right coverage, care and savings strategies.
The first episode, titled Health Benefits and Spending in a COVID World, features CDH experts Josh Collins, president of NueSynergy, and Marie Aloisi, SVP of commercial payments at MasterCard. The episode, which is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and more, discusses trends in consumer medical spending, what an industry recovery could look like as the pandemic continues, and how emerging technology can improve the consumer experience.
Future episodes will leverage data and research from Alegeus and other trusted industry sources, as well as insights from subject matter experts, to discuss a range of topics that go well beyond health savings accounts (HSAs), flexible spending accounts (FSAs) and other benefit accounts, including:
- How benefit offerings are evolving
- The role of technology in healthcare consumerism
- Strategies to help administrators, employers and consumers save more money on healthcare
The past year has changed the arc of healthcare consumerism in profound ways – from the way benefits look to the tools consumers use to engage with their health and wealth,” Colburn said. “There’s never been a better time to come together and discuss what’s working, what isn’t and where we go from here. I’m excited to be on this journey with Anna and all our guests, and we can’t wait to spark some thoughtful conversation and ideas.
