Everwell and SureAdhere Join Forces to Create Global Platform for TB Treatment and Medication Adherence Monitoring

This past weekend at the TB Innovation Summit in New York City, Everwell Health Solutions and SureAdhere Mobile Technology, Inc. announced they will formally merge companies and integrate their technologies to create a unified platform for medication monitoring in the battle against tuberculosis (TB) and other diseases. These two social enterprise corporations, both of which focus heavily on medication adherence support for TB, will be able to improve care and offer more choices to patients and providers by working together.

Andrew Cross, CEO of Everwell said, “I’m thrilled about this partnership– Everwell shares our core values with SureAdhere - open collaboration, empowering patients, and supporting personalized, patient-centric care. Bringing together our combined experiences, we can build solutions that are global in scale and appropriate for patients in individual contexts.”

Both Everwell (with their Everwell Hub that uniquely integrates 99DOTS with other digital adherence solutions) and SureAdhere (with their Video Observed Therapy [VOT] platform) have a strong history of working with key organizations in the public health space. Everwell has received significant support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, USAID and DFID; SureAdhere works closely with the StopTB Partnership’s Accelerator for Impact (a4i). To date, Everwell’s efforts have focused on South Asia and Eastern Africa, including a deep partnership with the Government of India’s public and private sector TB program; SureAdhere has primarily been working in North America, Europe and Asia. Both companies were formed by researchers dedicated to making evidenced-based solutions accessible everywhere they are needed to support global TB elimination efforts. Everwell’s and SureAdhere’s solutions have been used to monitor treatment for over 185,000 TB patients in seven countries around the world.

Kelly Collins, CEO of SureAdhere said, “By joining forces with Everwell, we can significantly improve the impact we’re having on TB treatment adherence. This combined effort will allow us to focus on what really matters—giving TB patients and practitioners options in the fight against the world’s deadliest infectious disease.”

SureAdhere will operate as a subsidiary of Everwell, and will maintain its current company leadership as the companies work together to integrate their technologies. With continued support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, USAID, a4i and others, the companies will partner with National TB Programs and NGOs across eight countries in Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe in 2018 to implement scalable, patient-centered monitoring options without forcing programs to adopt multiple disconnected technologies.

Lucica Ditiu, Executive Director of the Stop TB Partnership said, “I commend Everwell and SureAdhere for being forward-thinking in terms of how innovators should collaborate and work together. We are excited to be working with both companies to show that in order for TB innovations to be scaled, we need to put the countries and people affected by TB front and center.”
