CHICAGO, IL – May 11, 2023 – Higi, a digital health engagement company, is excited to announce that it has joined Modivcare Inc., a healthcare services company providing a suite of supportive care for public and private payors and their 34 million members. Higi's suite of consumer health engagement and digital communication tools will be integrated with Modivcare's suite of supportive care solutions, enhancing clinical connectivity and collectively accelerating the impact on the Social Determinants of Health (SDoH).
Higi will enable Modivcare to gain a more holistic view of member health needs and proactively support care access and delivery. Higi's unique combination of physical and digital engagement channels provides a national network of consumer-centered care resources. Jeff Bennett, CEO of Higi, shared his enthusiasm for joining Modivcare: "Our commitment at Higi is to expand access and connect consumers with resources to improve the health and wellbeing of the individuals who live, work, and shop in the communities we serve. Higi is pleased to join Modivcare’s mission and complement its suite of services with Higi’s technology."
"The addition of Higi is an important enabler for our One Modivcare vision," said L. Heath Sampson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Modivcare. "Their approach will amplify our supportive care platform, as well as enable the growth of our value-based solutions and member communication modalities."
Higi will continue to operate its established business under Modivcare’s ownership and implement its digital capabilities within Modivcare's suite of supportive care services. The strategic transaction was completed on March 29, 2023; financial details were not disclosed.
Higi addresses the lack of access to care by providing a digital-first strategy to assess consumers' ongoing health risks, deliver risk-appropriate care management solutions, and navigate consumers to interventions offered by stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem at scale. Higi meets consumers where they are via its omnichannel national network of 6,000 FDA-cleared, free-to-use, community-based Smart Health Stations, web, mobile, email, and text tools, home-based biometric devices, and a nationally based clinical care team, offering a unique combination of consumer-centered, self-care, and virtual care resources. As the centralized, trusted access point to care, Higi serves as the hub for curating health resources provided and sponsored by Retail, Health Systems, Health Plans, and Employers, enabling consumers to choose with whom and when they share data to support coordinated care delivery.
