Clients Give High Ratings to Marathon Health’s Advanced Primary Care Solution that Delivers Cost Savings and Improved Health Outcomes 

INDIANAPOLIS – Feb. 15, 2024 – Marathon Health, a national leader in delivering advanced primary care solutions for employers, today announced its selection as 2024 Best in KLAS in the employer-sponsored healthcare services category in the 2024 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services report. For employers and unions of all sizes who struggle with how to contain the ever-rising cost of providing healthcare for their teams, Marathon Health is a proven solution that delivers cost savings and better health outcomes. 

This award marks the fourth time that Marathon Health has earned Best in KLAS (2024; 2023; 2021; 2020). The company recently announced its merger with Everside Health, which was awarded ‘Best in KLAS’ in ’22 and ’19 (as legacy Activate Health). The merger resulted in six consecutive years of ‘Best in KLAS’ recognition.  

“To be acknowledged in this way for so many years is a testament to our dedicated team of healthcare professionals who are committed to delivering high-quality care,” said Jeff Wells, MD, CEO of Marathon Health. “Our goal is to support individuals to take control of their health, leading to improved outcomes and a healthier workforce for all. We are honored to be trusted by employers and unions across the country to support the health and wellness of their employees.” 

To arrive at the rankings, KLAS validated experiences with more than 100 employers. Marathon Health achieved a score of 90.4 against a category average of 88.2 and earned particularly high marks for loyalty and relationship. 

“At KLAS, we firmly believe that the voice of healthcare providers and payers is paramount,” said Adam Gale, KLAS Research CEO. “The Best in KLAS awards are based on extensive feedback and evaluations from healthcare professionals across the nation. Winning a Best in KLAS award, therefore, is not just about recognition; it shows the trust and confidence that healthcare providers place in the winning vendors. It also helps validate each vendor’s commitment to innovation, quality and customer satisfaction. We are proud to recognize 2024’s Best in KLAS award winners! Their unwavering dedication to improving patient outcomes is wonderfully inspiring.”

Marathon Health’s independent primary care model gives providers extra time to build relationships with their patients. Patients have better access to care and see improved health outcomes, from lowering their blood pressure to improving their A1C and gaining the confidence they need to reach their weight-loss goals. 

“Our care teams deserve the credit for this award. Every day they go above and beyond helping patients to improve their lives and consistently deliver results, including lowering healthcare costs for employers and unions by over 25%,” Wells said. “To be considered a trusted partner by our clients and receive this recognition is immensely fulfilling for our entire team at Marathon Health.”
