Humana has acquired Hummingbird Coaching Services, Cincinnati, a telephone- and Web-based health and wellness firm, for an undisclosed sum.
Hummingbird has offered wellness coaching since 1997. Its sites include MyHealthCoach.com and AboutMyKids.com.
Hummingbird has a user-friendly platform and coaching expertise that will advance Humana's vision of helping members achieve lifelong well-being,” Patrick Gotcher, president of LifeSynch, Humana's health and well-being subsidiary, said in a statement.
In September 2009, Humana's LifeSynch chose Hummingbird to provide online health coaching services to clients of the Louisville, Ky.-based insurer.
