Arizona-based HealthiestYou, a leader in telehealth user engagement, has been named by Inc. Magazine to the 2015 Inc. 5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Making its debut appearance as an Inc. 5000 company, HealthiestYou is ranked #846 on the prestigious list.
The company will be honored at the 34th Annual Inc. 5000 Conference and Gala to be held in October in Orlando. Joining an elite group, which over the years, has included companies such as Microsoft, Timberland, Vizio, Intuit, Chobani, Oracle, and Zappos.com, HealthiestYou’s rapid growth has been spurred by an increased demand from organizations that are implementing consumer-driven health plan models in order to reduce healthcare costs for employees while improving access to care.
Available to individuals and employers exclusively through thousands of experienced insurance partners and agencies, the HealthiestYou service redirects claims from expensive major medical health plans, saving money for employers and employees. Founded in 2012 as a telehealth and wellness provider, today the company has expanded its offerings, which now include connecting consumers to all their health options with an easy-to-use health technology platform available online and as a smartphone app. Members have access to more than 2,300 concierge doctors who are on call via telephone or email 24/7.
“Our rapid growth can be directly attributed to the fact that HealthiestYou uses consumer engagement to provide easy access and a simple way to understand healthcare choices that didn’t exist before,” said Jim Prendergast, CEO of HealthiestYou. “It solves a real problem for both employers who are trying to reverse the trend of increasing benefits spending and soaring healthcare premiums, and employees who want to avoid out-of-pocket costs and get better access to care. Plus pricing transparency means our members can easily shop and compare prices for procedures and prescriptions, saving them even more money.”
“The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”
The 2015 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 18 to September 22) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 jobs over the past three years.
