Welch Allyn Acquires HealthInterlink LLC Assets

Welch Allyn Inc. has announced the acquisition of substantially all assets of Prairie Ventures telehealth company HealthInterlink LLC of Omaha, Neb. HealthInterlink is a medical software company and developer of a flexible, affordable, and scalable software-based remote patient vital signs monitoring solution that is 510(k) cleared for marketing in the U.S.

HealthInterlink’s telehealth solution incorporates wireless patient monitoring devices and a mobile gateway device, (e.g., tablet or smartphone) that transmits vital signs data, answers to patient care plan questions, and patient messages to a HIPAA-compliant cloud-based web portal for patient data management by healthcare professionals and other authorized stakeholders.

According to Welch Allyn President and CEO Stephen Meyer the acquisition of the HealthInterlink assets offers Welch Allyn a unique opportunity to better serve its U.S. customers by offering them an mHealth solution optimized for cost-effective collection and delivery of remote health information.

“The acquisition of HealthInterlink’s assets is exciting news for Welch Allyn and is in keeping with our vision to help transform care wherever patients and healthcare professionals connect,” said Meyer. “As healthcare delivery becomes decentralized and extends beyond the traditional acute and ambulatory care locations where our offerings are used today, we intend to provide solutions that enable providers to deliver high-quality care, regardless of location.”

During a transition period, HealthInterlink’s current product will continue to be developed, sourced and sold by HealthInterlink’s existing workforce. It will be business as usual for all HealthInterlink partners and customers while the integration and transition is underway.
