Health Union Acquires WEGO Health
Health Union, the leader in building online health solutions for people living with chronic conditions, today announced that it has acquired WEGO Health, the world’s largest network of patient leaders – advocates, community leaders, creators and influencers. Combining Health Union’s targeted scale and depth in the condition experience with WEGO Health’s breadth of patient leaders in nearly all health conditions, Health Union aims to change the face of social health, connecting people in meaningful and innovative ways.
With the addition of WEGO Health’s Patient Leader Network, Health Union will become the largest team of experts, patient advocates and healthcare leaders, reaching scale that has never before been achieved in social health. In addition to expanding opportunities within its online health communities, the company will create and deliver unique solutions that impact all people on their health journey, from patients who passively seek health information to patient advocates and influencers who actively share health information on multiple social media platforms.
The combined teams will provide the healthcare industry with disruptive solutions that bring value – in new ways – to patients, sponsors and partners. By activating patients on a massive scale through Health Union’s expanding portfolio of online health communities and WEGO Health’s Patient Leader Network, Health Union will serve as a cohesive source for the healthcare industry’s patient-centered marketing needs.
