Castlight Health has expanded its technology platform through a partnership with Grand Rounds. Grand Rounds' Outcomes Management platform is now available via Castlight to mutual enterprise customers. Castlight enables integrations with partners like Grand Rounds through the Castlight Connect Solution Center, one of four Solution Centers that comprise the Castlight Enterprise Healthcare Cloud. These third-party integrations enable employees to discover and access services such as telehealth providers, Health Savings Account providers, on-site clinic providers, and other expert opinion services. Castlight Connect also has integrations with advocacy services, wellness solutions, decision support applications, and appointment scheduling solutions. Deploying this Castlight Solution Center empowers businesses to move away from a fragmented set of underutilized vendor programs to providing a "one-stop shop" for employees.

In most regions, the gap in quality between the average doctor and the best one in the area is significant; for example, the Grand Rounds algorithm recommends cardiac surgeons that have 40% lower mortality rates over a six-year time period. Similarly, patients who saw orthopedic surgeons recommended by Grand Rounds experienced 20% fewer complications after joint replacement surgeries. The algorithm is highly customized to each individual medical specialty, but evaluates factors including training background, institution, publication history, and patient outcomes. Key benefits for patients include: the ability to only have doctors recommended who fall within the patient's insurance network. All appointment setting and logistics handled by Grand Rounds -- even having medical records forwarded. All the patient has to do is show up. Follow up with the patient by Grand Rounds on-staff physicians to ensure quality of care and an outstanding experience.
