InTouch Health, the leading enterprise telehealth platform has acquired TruClinic, a web-based telemedicine provider based in Salt Lake City, Utah, specializing in direct-to-consumer virtual care solutions. Through the acquisition, InTouchHealth expands its existing portfolio to deliver a full range of virtual care programs to healthcare providers, enabling continuity of care between physicians and patients. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
The combined solution from InTouch Health and TruClinic will empower health systems to provide virtual care using their own internal physicians or by leveraging InTouchHealth’s national network of contracted physicians if needed, offering healthcare systems a choice and full control in how they virtually care for patients.
Historically, telehealth providers offer only a solution for a segment of the patient care continuum. This has forced health systems to acquire and integrate solutions from multiple vendors, often creating interoperability challenges for physicians to care for their patients as well as data management continuity for health systems.
InTouch Health will incorporate TruClinic’s software into its offering such that patients can now initiate and receive a consult with their health system physician from their home, further extending InTouch Health’s unified telehealth solution across the continuum of care, and solving this frustrating problem for physicians.
“We are thrilled to welcome TruClinic to the InTouch Health family. TruClinic is the perfect addition to the InTouch Health Platform, which will soon offer health systems home-to-home virtual care solutions,” said Joseph M. DeVivo, InTouch Health Chief Executive Officer. “By bringing InTouch Health and TruClinic together – already two of the top-rated telehealth companies according to KLAS – we will reshape the way healthcare systems look at virtual care and ultimately the way they can interact with their patients. This acquisition puts InTouch Health firmly in a leadership position with a breadth of technologies and a Network unrivaled by any other telehealth provider.”
