Health Insurer Aetna Acquires Healthagen, Maker of Popular “iTriage” Mobile App

It’s been announced that health insurance giant Aetna has acquired Healthagen, the company behind the the mega-popular “iTriage” mobile app — arguably the most successful mHealth app on the market today.

Last Thursday at an investor conference, Aetna’s Chairman, CEO, and President Mark Bertolini told investors “About a month and a half ago we bought a little company called iTriage…the fastest growing consumer application in healthcare today.  We’re going to begin to change the healthcare industry by giving people tools they can put in the palm of their hand.”  Aetna obviously sees the writing on the wall in terms of consumer-demand for mobile access to healthcare information, with this likely being the first step of many towards more mobile services for its users.

Like all healthcare payers, Aetna has a keen interest in keeping its members as healthy as possible, meaning they must proactively encourage healthy behavior through any means possible.  Through mobile communication and access to mobile services like iTriage, Aetna is doing just that.  Another goal for Aetna is keeping members as engaged as possible, which aids in retention as well. “Retention is the catalyst for growth,” Bertolini said.
