“When we started Firefly, we knew continuous, proactive virtual care was the future,” said Fay Rotenberg, President of Firefly Health. “COVID-19 has accelerated that future squarely into the now. We already survey and screen our members and respond to their concerns in minutes, so partnering with employers to support their teams’ healthy return to work — both physically and emotionally — is a natural extension of what we do. Employers and employees alike need a comprehensive approach that can give them the confidence to reopen.”
