Allianz Invests $59M in Strategic Partnership with American Well
Boston-based telehealth platform American Well announced that it has raised $59M from Allianz X, the digital investment unit of Allianz, bringing its total investment to date to $210.1M.
Together, the duo plan to develop digital health solutions that build on American Well’s platform and leverage Allianz’s international expertise by combining wearable sensors, remote monitoring, and virtual visits. This global telehealth system will allow providers to treat patients more successfully in the transforming world of connected care. Recall: American Well, established in 2006, has developed a telehealth platform that connects patients live with doctors, specialists and other healthcare providers over secure video. It handles clinical, administration, and security requirements consistent with US healthcare regulations and best practices.
