Castlight Health was founded in 2008 by Todd Park, Bryan
Roberts and Giovanni Colella. Together, they had a simple but
far-reaching dream: to transform health care in the United States.
Having spent their careers at the intersection of health care and
technology, they sought to tackle one of health care's fundamental
problems — the lack of transparency in the price and quality of health
care. Nearly every person they met told them that it could not be done,
and that it would never happen because the complexity of the problem
was insurmountable. Today, five years in, Castlight is helping
employers across the country address a broad range of enterprise health
care and benefits challenges. Castlight empowers people to make better
health care decisions and achieve better outcomes for themselves and
their families. At Castlight Health, we're incredibly proud of our
passionate, mission-driven team. Together with our customers and
partners, we are living our dream and truly transforming health care.
