Who We Are
Information Strategies, Inc. (ISI) created this website at the urging of its millions of business leader readers in 2005. Its purpose as outlined by JoAnn Laing, President & CEO, is to help consumers, insurance providers, financial institutions and other stakeholders better understand and grow Health Savings Accounts.
The website takes advertising on a very limited basis and offers many of its services totally free of any advertiser or governmental influence. The information and materials presented on this website originate from the award-winning editorial staff. Periodically, ISI surveys all sectors of the HSA marketplace and publishes data gleaned from these surveys. To December 1, 2007, ISI has interviewd more than 30,000 HSA users; 22,000 business leaders and thousands of stakeholders to monitor and report on the HSA sector.
To the best of its ability, ISI's editorial staff attempts to provide unbiased data and links to the best providers of HSA services. At that same date, more than 400 financial institutions are listed on its custodial page at no cost to them or the visitors who seek information on account custodial offerings.
ISI welcomes comments and suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
