Vancouver-born Sprout Wellness Solutions has been acquired by TELUS Health.
The acquisition will enhance TELUS Health’s virtual care offerings and add another leading Canadian digital health solution to their suite of services tailored to address the needs of organizations and their employees.
Sprout is a holistic digital health and wellness solution designed to educate, engage and inspire people to improve their health through behaviour change. The solution will be available as part of the TELUS Health suite of services for Canadian employers to empower their employees, through their benefits plan, to live healthier lives.
Sprout’s Brea Griffith and Martha Switzer have recently written guest Thought Leadership articles for Techcouver.
“We know preventative health practices can play a major role in reducing one’s chances of developing several chronic diseases, and services that allow users to be proactive about their health are an important component of an effective care plan,” said Daniel Martz, vice president, Virtual Care, TELUS Health.
“For more than a decade, Sprout has contributed to improving people’s health and wellness and we are pleased to add it to our full suite of virtual health services to continue helping businesses support the health and wellness of every employee.”
As an early investor in Sprout since 2015, TELUS recognized the positive influence the innovative health solution had on overall health and wellness, helping employees to shift their mindset to more proactively focus on improving their overall health and happiness.
Sprout will continue to be available for all its current customers. Over the coming months, TELUS Health will integrate Sprout Wellness Solutions into its Virtual Care service, making it available as a value-added solution to clients nationally in English and French.
