Trinity Health Invests in Xealth to Accelerate Digital Health
15 leading health systems have invested in the digital health platform for advancing digital connections between clinicians and their patients
BOSTON—HLTH Conference—October 19, 2021—Xealth, the leader in enabling digital health at scale, today announced that Trinity Health, one of the nation’s largest Catholic health care systems, has invested in the company. Trinity is one of 15 health system investors for the company, bringing the total Series B funding to $25 million. This support demonstrates continued provider consensus in adopting digital health in a way that best engages both clinicians and patients.
“As we have seen during COVID-19, digital health can enhance care delivery and improve engagement between our clinicians, patients and the communities we serve. Xealth has impressive experience connecting health solutions across a range of services, including maternity, diabetes, heart disease, and many others,” said Marcus Shipley, chief innovation and information officer for Trinity Health. “We value Xealth’s digital platform with pre-built integrations that span across digital content, apps, device monitoring as well as non-clinical services.”
Digital therapeutics, mobile apps, and remote patient monitoring help fill a necessary role in extending care options for patients. In September, Xealth announced Advocate Aurora Enterprises, Banner Health, ChristianaCare, Cone Health, Memorial Hermann, Nebraska Medicine, Novant Health and Stanford Health Care joining existing health system investors Atrium Health, Cleveland Clinic, Froedtert & MCW Health Network, MemorialCare Innovation Fund, Providence and UPMC. Collectively, these 15 health systems represent millions of patients and more than 100,000 physicians across 34 states.
“Care delivery is evolving with digital health offering an opportunity for health systems to address a variety of goals, including expanding services, higher engagement and addressing clinician resources,” said Mike McSherry, CEO and co-founder of Xealth. “The incredible support that we have received from leading health systems, including Trinity Health, demonstrates the value in Xealth’s approach to rolling out digital health that empowers both providers and patients, creating a personalized care experience that deepens the connection between patients and care teams.”
Xealth’s digital health platform serves a critical role in bringing digital health into clinicians’ workflows, an essential element for program success. It delivers centralized integration, prescribing, monitoring and governance for digital health tools from current clinician workflows, demonstrating a 50-80 percent reduction in integration and deployment costs, and substantial patient engagement with digital assets. Successful programs have been initiated around maternity, diabetes, behavioral health, heart disease, kidney disease, advance directives, infectious disease, surgery preparation and many other areas of care.
Hospitals and providers can further leverage intelligent automation and gain insight into how each tool is performing with patients. Patients can be enrolled in beneficial programs and share information directly with care providers through the EHR.
Spun out from Providence in 2017, Xealth has backing from 15 health systems and full integrations with the largest EHR vendors. Additional investors include Cerner, LRV Health, Threshold Ventures, McKesson Ventures, Novartis, Philips, and ResMed.
