Atrium Innovations (Sudbury, MA), a Nestlé Health Science company, is further expanding into personalized nutrition with the acquisition of San Francisco-based LivingMatrix, a technology-based data and algorithm-driven personalized functional medicine platform. It was designed by clinicians to help practitioners effectively evaluate and engage patients, create personalized, actionable care plans, and track patient health outcomes.
"This exciting acquisition is reflective of the current mission and direction for Atrium Innovations, with support from Nestlé Health Science, to expand our role in personalization within the medical professional and consumer spaces. The addition of LivingMatrix will allow us to take the next steps in leading the future of personalized health management," said Kyle Bliffert, president of Atrium Innovations, in a press release. "Our goal is to further scale our personalization platform through integrating LivingMatrix with our existing PureGenomics platform and future healthcare provider patient management systems providing the most comprehensive solution in the industry."
"The launch of the LivingMatrix platform has been a critical turning point for personalized and functional medicine and now, with the support of the Atrium Innovations and Nestlé Health Science family, we look forward to breaking even more barriers," said Priya Kamani, founder and CEO of LivingMatrix, in a press release. "This partnership brings opportunities to scale the business and accelerate our ability to drive and support additional research studies to expand the evidence base for effectively addressing chronic conditions."
This is the most recent acquisition for Nestlé Health Science as part of the company’s push into personalized nutrition. Prior to this, the firm acquired Persona (Snoqualmie, WA), which is a proprietary technology that considers specific factors in a consumer’s lifestyle, history, and individual needs to develop a personalized vitamin program.
"Through combining the strength of Persona's proprietary algorithm, the LivingMatrix data-driven technology and Atrium Innovation's leadership in the industry, we are creating an exciting future for personalized nutrition for professionals and consumers alike," explained Bliffert.
