CINCINNATI and REDMOND, Wash., May 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Bon Secours Mercy Health (BSMH) and ADURO announced today that BSMH has become a minority investor in ADURO, a leading health and well-being provider for corporations and health systems. This collaboration gives BSMH, the nation's fifth-largest Catholic health system with more than 57,000 employees in 1000 sites of care and $8 billion in net operating income, a leadership position in the digital transformation of today's value-based healthcare industry. BSMH's investment adds to the $22 million in growth funding ADURO received from Boston-based private equity firm Abry Partners in January 2019. ADURO's digital human performance and coaching platform unlocks potential across transformational areas of life including health, finance, personal growth, contribution and flourishing.
BSMH and ADURO have worked closely together for six years to innovate, implement and validate the connection of well-being and clinical care for BSMH employees, patients and community employers. ADURO and BSMH initially enabled an award-winning employee well-being program designed to improve the work and lives of care givers. BSHM then integrated ADURO's holistic well-being solution into the broader care continuum, allowing physicians and other caregivers to use real-time well-being data in patient engagements, and prescribe behavior-changing programs between episodic visits.
"Our associates have experienced tremendous success using ADURO's human performance innovations," said Allan Calonge, Chief HR Strategy & Well-being Officer at BSMH. "We look forward to continuing to advance our own ecosystem of well-being and precision care, while supporting ADURO as they continue to play a strategic role in revolutionizing modern healthcare."
"BSMH is one of the most progressive health systems in the country. Receiving their vote of confidence is of tremendous value," said Dr. Darren White, CEO at ADURO. "We are dedicated to shaping lifestyle behaviors in people and helping them flourish. Our collaboration with BSMH continues to evolve a personalized care experience for employees, patients and consumers that delivers improved outcomes and opens possibilities for care."
More recently, BSMH has integrated ADURO's platform into its work with other community employers, offering a coordinated well-being and clinical care solution as part of its comprehensive community population health initiative.
"We are focused on bringing well-being solutions to our communities through our new direct-to-employer programs," said Michael U. Todd, MD, Vice President of Business Development, Bon Secours Mercy Health. "By collaborating with ADURO, Bon Secours Mercy Health becomes the employer's subject matter expert for all aspects of health and well-being. Ultimately, this will benefit the employer and their community because associates and dependents will be reaching peak performance both in and outside of the workplace."
