InTouch Health enters direct-to-consumer telehealth with agreement to acquire TruClinic

InTouch Health, which offers an enterprise telehealth platform, acquired TruClinic Wednesday, signalling its entrance into the direct-to-consumer telehealth business.

TruClinic offers a web-based telehealth solution. Under the agreement, InTouch will expand its existing portfolio and provide a range of virtual care programs to healthcare providers. InTouch will integrate TruClinic's software into its offerings so patients can initiate and receive a consult with a physician from their health system.

"TruClinic is the perfect addition to the InTouch Health Platform, which will soon offer health systems home-to-home virtual care solutions," said Joseph DeVivo, CEO of InTouch. "By bringing InTouch Health and TruClinic together —  already two of the top-rated telehealth companies according to KLAS —  we will reshape the way healthcare systems look at virtual care and ultimately the way they can interact with their patients."
