“The large employer market is increasingly global and seeking scalable wellness platforms and solutions that can be adapted beyond the U.S.,” said LuAnn Heinen, vice president at the National Business Group on Health. “From that standpoint, the successful integration of these companies, each of which had its own successful platform, could be a plus. At the same time, we’re seeing a proliferation of startup players in the wellness space, so there is no shortage of niche solutions for employers to pilot in areas like diabetes prevention, nutrition, sleep and resilience. It’s good news that now, and in the foreseeable future, employers have access to large scalable solutions as well as new ideas and mobile apps from small vendors.”
