Cox Communications says has acquired Trapollo as a means of entering the home healthcare market. Trapollo provides managed services that enable healthcare providers, home health agencies, and insurers to deploy telehealth and remote health monitoring services. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition of Sterling, VA based Trapollo is part of a larger Cox initiative to claim a share of the teleheath market. The operator previously announced the formation of Vivre Health, a strategic alliance with Cleveland Clinic, as well as an investment in telehealth technology provider HealthSpot. "We believe that the home will be an increasingly important node within the healthcare delivery architecture," said Asheesh Saksena, executive vice president and chief strategy officer, Cox Communications. "The Trapollo acquisition allows us to play a more strategic role in the deployment of healthcare technologies in the homes of patients across the country." Trapollo designs, deploys, and manages large-scale nationwide telehealth and remote health monitoring programs for chronic disease management, independent living, and employer health and wellness programs. Its software-based offerings and logistics services cover a wide array of requirements, such as product selection and acquisition, program financing, asset and logistics management, in-home installations, user training, monitoring, triage services, customer and technical support, and patient-to-patient transfers of equipment. The company will retain its current leadership and brand.
