Teladoc and Microsoft are back in deal mode, this time hand-in-hand. According to the partners, Teladoc will be integrating its Solo virtual care platform for hospitals and health systems with Microsoft Teams, enabling EHR access and care team collaboration within the Teams environment. With tech players continuing to invest in digital health—and accounting for 11% of digital health acquisitions in H1 this year—this competitive group is sure to take notice of how the Teladoc-Teams rollout goes, slated for early 2022. Will mature virtual care technology plus scale and workflow integration prove to be a winning combination for providers and patients? 

We are thrilled to bring JOON into the Rock Health family! Learn more about our latest investment and how the JOON team is creating corporate wellness win-wins for employers and employees.
