Chicago, April 1, 2024 – Cylinder, the employee benefit for GI care, has joined Collective Health’s digital health hub, The Partner Collective™. Cylinder’s app joins a select group of digital health program partners with a proven track record of delivering quality and value for employer-sponsored benefits packages.

Collective Health, a leader in health benefits administration, offers The Partner Collective as a tool for benefits professionals and brokers to evaluate and compare digital health solutions all in one place. Self-funded employers who use Collective Health can review Cylinder’s offerings and make it immediately available to their employees, giving them round-the-clock access to high-quality GI care and coaching.

“Collective Health is a trusted leader in the health benefit marketplace and incredible partner for Cylinder as we continue to grow our business,” said Bill Snyder, CEO of Cylinder. “We’re excited to work with benefits leaders through the partner ecosystem to drive better member engagement and continue to improve the digestive health of people across the country.”

Through The Partner Collective, benefits administrators can work with Cylinder to help employees manage debilitating chronic and acute digestive issues like IBS, celiac disease, heartburn, gas, and more.

“We’re thrilled to work with Collective Health and make it easier than ever for benefits leaders to understand the advantages of digestive care for their employees,” said Karl Greiter, President and COO at Cylinder. “Integrating with The Partner Collective is an important step toward our goal of making digestive care more accessible to anyone who needs it, reducing medical claims and improving quality of life in one fell swoop.”

Cylinder’s approach to GI symptom management is clinically effective, with 9/10 users reporting symptom improvement and better quality of life. The company has raised $47 million in total funding, and recently added renowned gastroenterologist Dr. Hamed Khalili to its Clinical Advisory Board.
