WESTVILLE | Dianne Malfese was honored by Indiana Department of Correction Commissioner Bruce Lemmon and Westville Correctional Facility Superintendent Mark Levenhagen.  She received a new i-Pad as a reward for utilizing a new and innovative healthcare tool called Castlight Health. Malfese is a Correctional Casework Manager who guides offenders through the rehabilitative programs available at the facility and prepares them for their eventual release back to their communities and family.

Castlight is an incentive program designed to offer rewards to employees who take advantage of seeking high-quality healthcare and making positive lifestyle and health choices.  Employees who register with Castlight receive rewards points to be redeemed in a variety of forms including payroll contributions, gift cards or raffle tickets.

The goal of this program, called healthcare transparency, is to increase the use of high value healthcare and positive lifestyle changes such as participating in wellness programs in order to maximize the effectiveness of healthcare costs.

Commissioner Lemmon congratulated Malfese on her proactive approach to utilizing the healthcare options available to all state employees and encouraged everyone to do the same.  Superintendent Levenhagen also praised the Department of Correction for its high percentage of employees enrolled in the Castlight program.
