Nightingale Health Plc (”Nightingale”) and Suomen Terveystalo Ltd (”Terveystalo”) have entered into a strategic partnership agreement. With the agreement, Terveystalo will start developing new well-being services by utilizing Nightingale’s blood analysis technology, which measures the prevention needs related to the body's well-being and health. Based on the cooperation, a new subscription service will be built, which can be used through the Terveystalo application. The new service will be launched to all Terveystalo’s customers in autumn 2021. By signing a partnership agreement with an established healthcare service provider Nightingale has achieved one of its short-term business targets.

The partnership agreement is a framework agreement according to which Terveystalo will acquire services that are based on Nightingale’s Health Data Platform and Nightingale and Terveystalo will together develop new services to be provided to consumers. The partnership aims to provide people with new kind of health information that supports and motivates lifestyle change, thus giving the possibility to better prevent lifestyle diseases. The partnership agreement includes also an option to utilize Nightingale’s at-home testing capability.

The new consumer services that will be developed will combine the health insights of Nightingale’s Health Data Platform with the wellbeing services provided by Terveystalo, and the parties will share the revenue from these services. The partnership agreement provides Terveystalo exclusivity to act as Nightingale’s private healthcare provider partner in Finland, and Terveystalo commits to providing the service to its customers. The first version of the service includes a set of digital lifestyle coaching, research-based tools to increase your own well-being, and regular measurements with Nightingale technology to encourage lifestyle change. Nightingale considers the partnership agreement a major milestone in the commercialization of its Health Data Platform.

The partnership agreement is valid at least until the end of 2025, provided that by June 2023 the parties achieve targets that will be defined together during the collaboration. The partnership agreement includes also a possibility to expand the collaboration to other Nordic countries and the Baltic region.
