TELUS Health Acquires Sprout Wellness Solutions

TELUS Health today announced it has acquired Sprout Wellness Solutions, a holistic digital health and wellness solution designed to educate, engage and inspire people to improve their health through behaviour change. The solution will be available as part of the TELUS Health suite of services for Canadian employers to empower their employees, through their benefits plan, to live healthier lives.

Built using machine learning and cognitive behavioural science, the Sprout platform encourages, measures, and rewards healthy behaviours through:

  • Real-time health risk assessment;
  • Wearable device integrations and activity tracking;
  • Engaging health and wellness content;
  • Dynamic goals, gamified challenges, and more.

As an early investor in Sprout since 2015, TELUS recognized the positive influence the innovative health solution had on overall health and wellness, helping employees to shift their mindset to more proactively focus on improving their overall health and happiness.

As organizations increasingly seek to embrace more digital well-being empowerment tools for their team members, this acquisition allows TELUS Health to deliver a broader suite of options to complement its established services such as virtual care, virtual pharmacy, and medical and mental health clinics to support Canada’s workforce at every step of their health journey.

Sprout will continue to be available for all its current customers. Over the coming months, TELUS Health will integrate Sprout Wellness Solutions into its Virtual Care service, making it available as a value-added solution to clients nationally in English and French.

Employers who are interested in learning more about how Sprout can improve the health and well-being of their employees by being added to their benefits plans can request information here.
