Camp Hill, Pa. -- Rite Aid on Tuesday announced it has acquired Boston-based Health Dialog Services Corp., a provider of health coaching, shared decision making and healthcare analytics from Bupa, a London-based international healthcare services group. Through the acquisition, Health Dialog will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Rite Aid.
Rite Aid's acquisition of Health Dialog will also support and advance Rite Aid Health Alliance, a health management collaboration among various healthcare providers who deliver comprehensive care and support to individuals with chronic and poly-chronic health conditions. Health Dialog has been working closely with Rite Aid over the past year as the program has been developed, and currently provides care coaches for Rite Aid Health Alliance.
"This acquisition will provide Health Dialog with an expanded footprint to grow its existing business as well as further leverage the company's coaching services' expertise as we work to bring Rite Aid Health Alliance to more Rite Aid markets and customers," stated John Standley, Rite Aid chairman and CEO. "Additionally, we will benefit from Health Dialog's industry-leading analytics and shared-decision making tools, helping us to better serve the health and wellness needs of our customers and further develop our pharmacy services as a growing retail health care company."
