NEW YORK—APCO Worldwide and Text100 have launched a joint offering focused on digital healthcare. The offering, ATDigitalHealth, combines the strengths of each firm to support digital health clients including technology companies, healthcare organizations, and pure-play digital health companies with communication and stakeholder engagement services.
“ATDigitalHealth is built around a bold aspiration to empower and accelerate the digital health revolution,” says Brad Staples, CEO of APCO Worldwide, who says the offer is designed to help clients with “challenges related to provider acceptance, uncertain payer reimbursement, lagging public policy and inexact consumer behaviors and attitudes are only getting more complex.”
