Cox acquires Trapollo to enter the home connected health market

Trapollo

Cox Communications has acquired Trapollo, which enables healthcare providers, home health agencies and insurers to deploy telehealth and remote health monitoring solutions.

Based in Sterling, Virginia, Trapollo is focused on programs for chronic disease management, independent living, and employer health and wellness programs.

“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.”

Under the deal, Trapollo will retain its current leadership and brand while benefiting from the track record that Cox has of building successful businesses across a variety of industries.

The acquisition of Trapollo is a part of Cox’s strategy to bring “world-class healthcare to the home” through telehealth and home health solutions. Earlier this year, Cox teamed-up with Cleveland Clinic to form Vivre Health, as well as its investment in HealthSpot, a pioneer in patient and provider driven telehealth technology.
