GetWellNetwork Acquires HealthLoop

GetWellNetwork announced recently that it has acquired HealthLoop, a 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.”


The IoT Evolution Expo, and collocated events, IoT Evolution Health, LPWAN Expo, The Smart City Event, and IIoT Conference, will take place Jan. 29 to Feb 1 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Visit IoTEvolutionExpo.com to register now.
