Accolade and Employers Present the Power of Personalized Advocacy at Healthcare Industry Events Across the Country

Accolade Executives Introduce Healthcare Innovation Strategies that Improve Health Outcomes and Employee Experience at Conference Board East and West, NBGH, HLTH, Evolve 2018 and Other Events

PUBLISH DATE: March 6, 2018


NEW YORK – March 6, 2018 – With today’s low unemployment and rising healthcare costs, employers are readdressing their long-term healthcare strategies and rethinking how to best delight employees and their families. Accolade is leading this movement from traditional advocacy towards personalized advocacy, with an approach that delivers better health outcomes and high employee satisfaction year over year for employers of all sizes.


Accolade will join top U.S. employers at various events to present high-touch, high-tech health and benefits solutions that work. In March, AmeriGas benefits leader Andy Rosa will share why the company chose Personalized Advocacy from Accolade, with staggering results around cost savings, and employee satisfaction and engagement with benefits. Accolade President Rob Cavanaugh joins Rosa at Conference Board East, with Accolade CEO Rajeev Singh joining at Conference Board West to reveal why flexibility and integration with carriers and third-party administrators can unlock new results.


Unlike traditional advocacy strategies, personalized advocacy blends human and data intelligence, culled from relationships with compassionate advisors, deep clinical expertise and intelligent technologies.  This combination of high touch and high tech works to address the whole person – behavioral, social, lifestyle, community – not just health conditions. “As employers look at advocacy solutions this year, we encourage comparisons to those that engage employees once they enter the healthcare system or lean entirely on data, versus those that provide personalized support with trusted advisors that engage early when influencing decisions about health can have life-changing and life-saving impact,” said Cavanaugh.
