NY Times on how Comcast is trying to change corporate healthcare (& update on Accolade)

You’ll Never Guess Which Company Is Reinventing Health Benefits (NY Times)

"It’s hard to think of a company that seems less likely to transform health care.

It isn’t headquartered in Silicon Valley, with all the venture-backed start-ups. It’s not among the corporate giants — Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase — that recently announced, with much fanfare, a plan to overhaul the medical-industrial complex for their employees."

Technology fuels growth at Accolade health venture, 3 years after Concur founders took helm (GeekWire)

Curious if Comcast might some day acquire Accolade and sell its services to others. Long shot, outside of Network & Programming model, but its looking for new niches.

Geekwire article says Accolade currently at 900 employees, including 100 at co-headquarters in Seattle. Also adding to third base in Phoenix.
Surprisingly, headcount has not grown much since the Concur guys invested in it - maybe 30%.
