Teladoc Health is looking to combine telehealth and telemedicine with a major acquisition announced over the weekend. The Texas-based developer of consumer-to-provider telehealth solutions is adding provider-to-provider services with its planned purchase of InTouch Health. Announced prior to the J.P. Morgan Healthcare conference this week in San Francisco, the $600 million deal shakes up the upper echelons of connected health and pushes the industry even further toward integrated, enterprise-level virtual care. The combination of these organizations will create the clear leader in comprehensive virtual care solutions for hospitals and health systems, both inside and outside the four walls of the traditional care facility, Teladoc Health CEO Jason Gorevic said in an e-mail to mHealthIntelligence this weekend. This announcement comes at a time when demand for virtual care services within the provider market is poised for significant growth.
