CVS Health announced the addition of five digital health services to its Point Solutions Management platform, through which CVS Caremark pharmacy benefit management clients can cover the costs of digital health tools for employees. The new offerings join Big Health, the first digital health company to partner with the platform upon its June 2019 launch. Through the partnership, CVS’ PBM clients have access to Big Health’s digital insomnia treatment app Sleepio.
The five new digital health offerings are: Hello Heart: a blood pressure monitor and app to track heart health; Hinge Health: a digital coaching and exercise program for musculoskeletal conditions; Livongo: a coaching and connected device platform for diabetes, hypertension, and weight management; Torchlight: a digital platform to support family members and other caregivers; and Whil: an on-demand training program for mindfulness and mental well-being. The organizations and platforms were chosen through a careful vetting process.
CVS Health has more than 9,900 retail locations, approximately 1,100 walk-in medical clinics, a leading pharmacy benefits manager with approximately 94 million plan members, a senior pharmacy care business serving more than one million consumers per year, and expanding specialty pharmacy services. CVS Health serves an estimated 38 million people through traditional, voluntary, and consumer-directed health insurance products and related services.
