Company Vision

Solera Health was founded on the belief that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to getting and staying healthy. Their consumer-focused approach to help people maintain and improve their health holistically began in diabetes prevention.

In building a technology platform to address the consumer pain point of accessing relevant health-related programs or services, Solera quickly discovered the root of the problem: a highly fragmented ecosystem of community providers, digital programs and other health offerings.

By integrating this into a network model, Solera matched individuals to covered health benefits, while removing the considerable administrative burden of matching, reporting, and billing services for both payers and health service providers. This ‘do less, get more’ approach has proven both intuitive for customers, and easily measurable and billable against medical claims.

Their focus has steadily expanded into chronic disease management, nutrition, stress, sleep, as well as other social determinants, such as economic insecurity and social isolation.


Target Customer: Health plans and Employers

Market Footprint: Solera’s network spans more than 11,000 local programs that cover over 40 million lives across 50 states. They are currently contracted with 15+ enterprise customers.

Strategic Partners: FitBit, Blue Cross Blue Shield Institute (BCBS Institute), US Preventive Medicine, as well as dozens of network partners in diabetes prevention, nutrition, and other areas.

Key Investors: Blue Cross Blue Shield Ventures/Sandbox Industries, Adams Street Partners, HCSC Ventures, SFJ Ventures
