About

Our Story

Created inside one of the nation’s largest home healthcare companies and acquired by The Helper Bees in 2021. Today, healthAlign is focused on expanding our Aging-In-Place Marketplace to help payers manage a diverse range of care and support services into the home.

Our business model is designed to offer payers a single point of accountability to drive consistent quality, value, and performance at the local level. This enables payers to spend more time focusing on population-based program outcomes and less energy on chasing fulfillment across a patchwork of agencies on a referral-by-referral basis.

2022

Launched innovative digital wallet benefit, enabling members to self-manage a diverse range of services into the home.

2021

Announcement of acquisition by The Helper Bees, the long-term care insurance leader in providing non-medical care in the home. Our combined expertise and technology offer payers a more complete solution that includes personality-based caregiver matching, nurse assessments, care management services, and advanced data analytics across all member touchpoints in the home.

2020

healthAlign spun out from our parent company, becoming an independent, standalone entity.

Our team was recognized by long-term care expert Anne Tumlinson as a favored approach that plans are using to help better manage care into the home.

2019

healthAlign built out broad experience helping several health plans across the country coordinate services and close gaps in home care

2018

healthAlign is created as a separate entity to manage home and community-based services.

2017

Recognizing  health plans wrestle with administrative burdens, fulfillment gaps and low visibility when managing community based programs  —  and that no one provider can help the plan solve these problems  —  we began framing up solutions by pulling together the power of a diverse platform of provider partners.  This is the path to enable better, smarter fulfillment of these services.

2015

healthAlign helped reduce hospital readmissions by 65%, understanding avoidable utilization is not always the problem, but rather a symptom of other barriers to adherence.

2014

healthAlign team began launching community-based care pilots in multiple markets nationally.
