Best Buy to acquire health technology platform

MINNEAPOLIS – Best Buy has signed an agreement to acquire Current Health, a technology platform that brings together remote patient monitoring, telehealth and patient engagement into a single solution for healthcare organizations.  

“The future of consumer technology is directly connected to the future of healthcare,” said Deborah Di Sanzo, president of Best Buy Health. “We have the distinct expertise in helping customers make technology work for them directly in their homes and by combining Current Health’s remote care management platform with our existing health products and services, we can create a holistic care ecosystem that shows up for someone across all of their healthcare needs.”  

Current Health’s enterprise care-at-home platform enables healthcare organizations to deliver high-quality, patient-centric care at a lower cost. The company integrates patient-reported data with data from biosensors – including their own continuous monitoring wearable device – to provide healthcare organizations with actionable, real-time insights into the patient’s condition. 

“Over the coming decade, significantly more healthcare can be delivered in the home,” said Christopher McCann, CEO of Current Health. “Best Buy has unparalleled physical reach, world-class supply chain logistics, and trusted support services–allowing us to provide a high-touch consumer experience, at scale. We’re excited to join with Best Buy Health to move safe and effective healthcare into the home globally.” 

Earlier this year, Best Buy Health began offering health and safety services on the Apple Watch, and launched the Lively App and Lively Wearable2 medical alert device.
