Patient engagement pioneer unites with Silicon Valley startup to define the next era of digital health

WASHINGTON — Nov. 8, 2018 — GetWellNetwork, the Precision Engagement health care company, announced today that it has acquired HealthLoop, a leading digital health company. With over 7.2 million annual patient interactions, HealthLoop’s more than 160 dynamic care plans monitor patients and assess risk in real time, helping providers, hospitals and health systems improve patient engagement, satisfaction and health outcomes. The acquisition expands GetWellNetwork’s reach into nearly 700 health care providers, placing it at the forefront of the changing health care landscape and at the heart of the patient journey.

As health care organizations adapt to the expectations of today’s digital consumer, GetWellNetwork is combining its nearly two decades of experience implementing patient engagement solutions with HealthLoop’s expertise in mobile technologies and digital care management. The move is designed to catalyze aggressive growth in the ambulatory space and signals plans for more long-term strategic investments in cross-continuum tools to connect patients, families and providers.

GetWell Loop will fill the post-discharge follow-up gap and unify the pre- to post-care patient experience by bringing together the key elements of convenience and coordination frequently missing from traditional care delivery.

“Adding HealthLoop to our portfolio advances our strategy to provide the most comprehensive, end-to-end digital patient and family engagement platform,” said Michael O’Neil, founder and CEO, GetWellNetwork. “The changing nature of the how and where care is delivered requires dynamic solutions to meet modern engagement challenges. With HealthLoop as part of the GetWell portfolio, we’re excited to help health care organizations rethink and accelerate their digital strategies.”

GetWellNetwork Unveils the Future of Patient Engagement

As healthcare providers become more accountable and assume more risk across the care continuum, interactive patient care (IPC) will be essential in moving patient engagement well beyond the hospital walls in order to improve outcomes.  This video from GetWellNetwork illustrates how innovations in IPC will improve outcomes for patients and hospitals by becoming a part of everyday life.

With its interactive patient care technology (IPC) implemented in more than 20,000 hospital beds across the U.S., GetWellNetwork has been leading the charge in IPC.  This video provides a glimpse into how it has been successful in incorporating it into the healthcare landscape.

Moving Beyond the Hospital Walls to Just About Anywhere, Children to Adults Will Have the Capability to Better Manage Their Health

BETHESDA, MD–(Marketwire – Aug 2, 2012) –  Committed to keeping patients focused on their health long after their hospital stay, GetWellNetwork®, Inc., the leader in interactive patient care (IPC) solutions, is helping to define how patient engagement will take hold as a crucial element in the future of healthcare. The company has launched a video to illustrate improvements in healthcare outcomes for hospitals and patients through innovations in IPC that extend far beyond the walls of the hospital to everyday lives. Because of changing regulations in an increasingly challenging healthcare environment, new technologies are needed to engage patients and enable them to more readily and proactively manage their health conditions.

Patient engagement is now included throughout every significant healthcare law from Meaningful Use to the America Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA), and from the National Patient Safety Initiative to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) recently upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. Because of its ability to engage, educate and empower patients and families throughout the patient journey, IPC is recognized as a driving force behind strategic and actionable change needed in the face of today’s healthcare challenges and changing regulations.

With its interactive patient care technology implemented in more than 20,000 hospital beds across the U.S., and, as the only IPC vendor to provide a specific pathway for pediatrics and exclusive education content from KidsHealth®, GetWellNetwork has been leading the charge in IPC. Now the company is building on its platform to extend the technology beyond the hospital and integrate IPC into any place people’s lives take them, whether it’s at home, on the soccer field, in the grocery store or at the doctor. GetWellNetwork’s goal is to engage individuals in their care and encourage positive healthcare transformation.

“Along with our hospital partners, we are beginning an exciting new chapter in the interactive patient care journey,” said Michael O’Neil, founder and CEO of GetWellNetwork. “As healthcare providers take on accountability and risk across the care continuum, we are moving our patient engagement solutions well beyond the hospital walls to improve outcomes. It’s a dynamic time for our growing GetWellNetwork community, and we are confident of the profound impact we will have on healthcare delivery for years to come.”

This video provides a sneak peek into how GetWellNetwork is succeeding at incorporating interactive patient care into the healthcare landscape.
