Castlight Enterprise Healthcare Summit: Magic and the President

Castlight Health is expanding beyond its origins in cost transparency, today announcing the Castlight Enterprise Cloud, which includes four “solution centers” — that encompass analytics, incentives, and personalization. The company made the announcement in a grand way, with an Enterprise Healthcare Summit featuring President Bill Clinton, Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Steve Forbes, Toby Cosgrove (Cleveland Clinic) and Castlight executives Giovanni Colella and Naomi Allen.

I had the opportunity to attend, learn more about the company’s latest, and mix and mingle with a high-powered crowd. Here’s my scrapbook:
