US-based health solutions provider Medical Guardian has acquired MobileHelp from Advocate Aurora Enterprises.

Based in Florida, MobileHelp provides real-time medical monitoring, location tracking and other solutions to help older patients live independently and healthily.

The deal is intended to expand Medical Guardian’s suite of services and strengthen its capabilities in safety, engagement and wellness.

The company currently has more than 600,000 active members using its personal emergency response systems (PERS), remote patient monitoring (RPM) and healthcare engagement services.

It plans to integrate MobileHelp’s patented technology into its flagship service, MGEngage360, which aims to turn conventional PERS into a comprehensive at-home tool for wellness and care outreach.

The goal of MGEngage360 is to increase user engagement, bridge care gaps and deliver higher-quality care at reduced costs.

Medical Guardian founder and CEO Geoff Gross said: “With the acquisition of MobileHelp, we’re now making PERS and RPM a cohesive solution to support aging adults and the chronically ill.

“This highly differentiated technology complements our mission to empower our members to live a life without limits, while delivering tangible value to health care partners.

“We’re now even better equipped to support member needs across all environments – at home, on the go, and in senior living communities – with a comprehensive suite of solutions.”

Once the deal has closed, MobileHelp will maintain its brand identity within the direct-to-consumer healthcare space and through commercial partner distribution.

MobileHelp co-founder Rob Flippo said: “We are thrilled to expand the reach of our patented RPM and PERS technology through Medical Guardian’s extensive partnerships and services, creating a unified platform that enhances and helps expand access to care nationwide.

“With more than 60 million Americans aged 65 and older leading increasingly active lifestyles, it is essential to provide robust and intuitive solutions that support their independence and health.

“Joining Medical Guardian is a vital step forward in realising that vision.”
