NEW YORK, Jan. 20, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Remedy Health Media, a trusted leader in consumer health and wellness information, today announced that it has acquired Intelecare, a company that specializes in medical adherence solutions that increase prescription compliance for consumers, health plans, pharmacies and pharmaceutical manufacturers. The acquisition furthers Remedy Health Media's plans to enhance its technology capability, interactive reach and customer base. 

The acquisition adds robust communications platforms, including market-adopted mobile solutions and interactive online communication services utilized by millions of consumers. These will expand the reach of Remedy Health Media's consumer offerings. Intelecare's Chief Executive Officer, Kevin Aniskovich, will join Remedy Health Media's executive team as its Executive Vice President for Enterprise Health Services.

"We're thrilled to welcome Intelecare to the Remedy Health Media family," said Michael Cunnion, Chief Executive Officer of Remedy Health Media. "Intelecare provides high-value consumer reach, new technology and mobile distribution, which creates a host of new growth opportunities for our company. Most importantly, Intelecare's mission of helping consumers better manage their health—wherever they might be—is perfectly aligned with Remedy Health Media's mission."

"I am also thrilled to welcome Kevin to the Remedy Health Media executive team," added Cunnion. "He brings an entrepreneurial spirit to our company and is ideally suited to help us grow rapidly in novel ways in both existing and new markets."
