LAS VEGAS: League Inc. and Cleveland Clinic are collaborating to offer employees across North America a more proactive and impactful healthcare experience, by leveraging League’s health benefits experience (HBXTM) technology and Cleveland Clinic’s extensive clinical expertise to improve health outcomes.

League, North America’s leading enterprise health operating system, provides a single access hub for employees to understand and engage with their health, lifestyle and benefit programs. Cleveland Clinic, consistently named one of America’s best hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, will serve as League’s Chief Medical Director, providing medical oversight, content and advisory support.

“Healthcare is a complex ecosystem and, even though our workforce is more connected than ever, utilization of healthcare benefits continues to be challenging, overwhelming and fragmented,” said Mike Serbinis, founder and CEO of League. “We know first-hand that people need more intuitive, personalized solutions that will actually work to improve their health. By combining our best-in-class platform with Cleveland Clinic’s medical proficiency, we can provide members and customers with a digital front door to healthcare where quality and technology work hand-in-hand to improve individual outcomes — a goal we ultimately both share.”

As Chief Medical Director, Cleveland Clinic’s management and clinical experts will provide strategic guidance for League’s health programs and profile, to better personalize members’ experience and identify health risks. Cleveland Clinic will work with League to provide customers with tools that can improve their health benefits return-on-investment, with the aim of improving the overall health and wellbeing of their employees.

“League is working with some of the most forward-thinking enterprise companies, who are dedicated to improving employees’ health,” said Bill Peacock, Cleveland Clinic’s Chief of Operations. “By tapping into these employers with our collaborative efforts, we have a real opportunity to change the way that people interact with their healthcare network.”

As one of the leading non-for-profit and academic medical institutions in the world, Cleveland Clinic is at the forefront of medicine, medical research and healthcare innovation. The Corporate Medical Director program was developed in Canada and is supported by Cleveland Clinic Canada’s experienced leadership team, which includes Mike Kessel, CEO of Cleveland Clinic Canada, who will oversee the collaboration.

Kessel added, “In bringing together the best in technology and best in patient care, this collaboration creates an unparalleled opportunity to improve the lives of more people. We’re looking forward to working with League as their Chief Medical Director.”

League’s mission is to provide an end-to-end experience that delivers higher engagement and education to employees about their benefits, with an ultimate goal to drive better health outcomes. League’s HBXTM platform provides a front door to healthcare, allowing forward thinking employers like Unilever, Uber, Shopify, and Lush Cosmetics to deliver personalized health recommendations that actively support employees’ health and wellness through a single access hub.
