Scaling Wellness Programs through SMARTS™ Decision Management System

Sparkling Logic today announced from BBC 2013 that Onlife Health, a leading national wellness company has deployed a SMARTS™ decision service as part of their award-winning Onlife Health Portal. Onlife is a leading provider of wellness management services to business and health plans. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, in 2013, seventy-seven percent of employers offering health benefits also offered some form of wellness program.

“As healthcare costs continue to increase for employers, wellness programs have become an important employee benefit, empowering employees to more proactively manage their health,” said Carole-Ann Matignon, Sparkling Logic’s CEO, “Onlife is a known leader in corporate wellness programs and we are very pleased to be part of their wellness portal.”

Onlife needed to expand to the scalability of its wellness portal platform to accommodate a significant increase in participants. As part of the new platform, Onlife needed a scalable, high-performance decision management system, to automate complex decision logic and centralize governance and management of the business rules. They selected Sparkling Logic SMARTS™ because of its advanced, next-generation decision management system.

In less than one month, Onlife Health’s business analysts successfully wrote and tested the rules that assess participants’ health risks and offer recommendations to help them improve their health. An assessment is initially performed upon enrollment in the wellness program and is updated when the participant reports new information or when new information is collected from the participant’s health plan. Recommendations include coaching and self-directed courses with diet and exercise trackers.

The new portal has achieved a 95% participation rate. During peak volumes it processes hundreds of risk assessments and recommendations per minute.

“SMARTS provides our new platform with scalable, high-performance decisioning,” says David Jarmoluk, Vice President of Enterprise Solutions. “We are able to easily change our decisions as business needs dictate and deploy these changes without going through the full software change process.”

David and Carole-Ann will present how Onlife is using SMARTS™ at the BBC 2013 conference.
