Wellview and SentryHealth Join Forces to Create a Comprehensive, End-to-End, Integrated Employee Health Solution
Combined company will establish a connected employee healthcare experience unlike any on the market today.
LOUISVILLE, KY (March 8, 2022) - SentryHealth, a leader in integrated health management, and Wellview, a digital population health platform, today announced the merger of the two companies. This union creates a powerful connected employee healthcare experience driven by best-in-class technology, programs, and services.
“SentryHealth and Wellview share the same desire to make care more accessible and affordable for employers and their employees. Through the right combination of technology plus human interaction, employees are more likely to engage in their own health, driving better results for everyone,” commented James Story, CEO of Wellview.
SentryHealth brings advanced data science and medical advocacy from Registered Nurse Advocates to aid employees in navigating the healthcare system and their benefits. Wellview’s digital health platform allows employees to engage virtually with health and wellbeing experts.
The pandemic highlighted the need for better access to quality, affordable care. In response, employers rapidly adopted digital health point solutions. However, this resulted in a disconnected, overwhelming experience for both employees and employers. Together, the combined company incorporates benefits navigation, wellbeing, chronic condition support, medical advocacy, precertification, and complex case management into a single partner, streamlining the experience for employees and employers while driving better clinical and financial outcomes.
“We are delighted to join forces with Wellview to offer an integrated solution that raises the bar on employee health,” said SentryHealth CEO, J. Kevin Porter.
“Employees are looking for affordable, high-quality healthcare that’s right for them…without having to jump through hoops. Together, we will ensure that all employees, regardless of risk level, get the kind of care they need, when they need it.”
To accelerate innovation and growth, the merger is supported by Panoramic Ventures, OCAVentures, and Lunsford Capital. “We believe the combined companies offer a platform solution that answers an unmet need in the self-insured employer market by fully addressing the entire health spectrum of the employer’s member population,” said Panoramic Ventures Principal, Austin Poole. “We are excited to partner with the company and its leadership as it embarks on its next stage of growth.”
Founded in 2013, Wellview spent its early years developing a technology-enabled health experience and validated case studies earning the company a reputation for value-based care delivery. Wellview quickly rose to a leading position in population health management with record-breaking health engagement, clinical outcomes, and claims-cost reduction rates.
