ATLANTA, Sept. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Cox Communications today announced that it has acquired Trapollo, a leading provider of managed services that enable healthcare providers, home health agencies and insurers to successfully deploy telehealth and remote health monitoring solutions.
“We believe that the home will be an increasingly important node within the healthcare delivery architecture,” said Asheesh Saksena, executive vice president and chief strategy officer, Cox Communications. “The Trapollo acquisition allows us to play a more strategic role in the deployment of healthcare technologies in the homes of patients across the country.”
Based in Sterling, Virginia, Trapollo designs, deploys and manages large scale nationwide telehealth and remote health monitoring programs for chronic disease management, independent living, and employer health and wellness programs.
