LOUSVILLE, Ky., March 8, 2022 SentryHealth Inc. ("SentryHealth"), a leading provider of technology-enabled care coordination and case management solutions, is pleased to announce that it has merged with Wellview Inc.

This integration unites two market-leading, technology-enabled healthcare benefit management companies in the U.S. and will build a robust core competency that provides a single solution for self-insured employers to manage healthcare benefits in a way that engages, coordinates care, provides price transparency, and manages high-cost interventions for employees in a personal way.

"Employees are looking for affordable, high-quality health care that's right for them - without having to jump through hoops. Together, we will ensure that all employees, regardless of risk level, get the kind of care they need, when they need it."
"SentryHealth and Wellview share the same desire to make care more accessible and affordable for employers and their employees. Through the right combination of technology plus human interaction, employees are more likely to engage in their own health, driving better results for everyone," commented James Story, CEO of Wellview.
Kevin Porter, SentryHealth's CEO, has been named CEO of the new combined company. James Story, Wellview's co-founder and CEO, has been named Chief Strategy Officer of the new combined company. The new company will combine under the SentryHealth brand and provide services to nearly 300 employers across the U.S. To accelerate innovation and growth, the merger is supported by BIP Ventures, OCA Ventures, and Lunsford Capital.
"We believe the combined companies offer a platform solution that answers an unmet need in the self-insured employer market by fully addressing the entire health spectrum of the employer's member population," said BIP Ventures Principal, Austin Poole.
