Digital health and wellness company ADURO secured $22 million from Abry Partners to accelerate innovation, fuel growth and expand globally, according to an announcement.

ADURO’s digital health platform, called Human Performance, offers solutions to employers and health systems that allow users to take charge or what is most important to them to help them become their best self.

“We are thrilled to partner with Abry to leverage their digital health expertise, extensive network and financial prowess as we transform this industry,” said Darren White, D.C., co-founder and CEO of ADURO.

Abry, a Boston-based private equity firm, manages over $5 billion of capital in its active funds. The company has also completed more than $80 billion in transactions.
 
The machine learning platform uses data and technology to create digital webinars and offers one-on-one coaching to empower organizations and impact lives.
 
The ADURO mHealth app provides a client center that includes population insights, account strategy and reporting.
 
And while this platform can be used to manage the well-being of the user, or even to allow an employee to set goals and monitor their progress, it is not beneficial unless employers first recognize the needs of their employees.
 
Employers have access to an increasing amount of digital health solutions and are not taking advantage of the technology.
 
In 2018, Castlight revealed that the top goals of employees were to lose weight, save money for retirement and sleep better. But only 60 percent of companies offered weight-loss digital health solutions and only 27 percent offered programs for sleep improvement.
 
For employees to get the most out of mHealth apps and digital health technology, their needs need to be met, or the solutions are not beneficial.
