Livongo Health (Livongo) recently announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Denver-based myStrength, Inc., the leading provider of digital behavioral health solutions. The acquisition will enable Livongo to fully address the health of the whole person by bringing behavioral health conditions including depression, anxiety, stress, addiction disorder, chronic pain, opioid addiction and recovery, and insomnia to Livongo’s Applied Health Signals solution. myStrength currently partners with over 130 of the largest health plans and health systems in the country, including Medicaid funded community health care organizations across 32 states.
The addition of myStrength will allow Livongo members to seamlessly manage their chronic conditions and behavioral health on one platform with a clinical grade solution that is simultaneously focused on the typical health care consumer. myStrength’s behavioral health solution uses evidence-based interventions including cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, positive psychology, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing to help individuals resolve clinical conditions, build resiliency, manage stress, improve mood, sleep better, or simply find daily inspiration. According to statements from Livongo’s executive chairman, Glen Tullman, the acquisition of myStrength represents Livongo’s first strategic investment to address the full range of behavioral health issues on one platform.
Livongo pioneered the category of “Applied Health Signals,” empowering people with chronic conditions to live better and healthier lives. myStrength, Inc., “The Health Club For Your Mind,” is a recognized leader in digital mental health that enhances traditional care, delivering effective mental health resources at scale.
