Health Dialog is a care management, employee wellness, and decision support provider, and wholly-owned subsidiary of Bupa. The company is based in the United States and headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. The company was founded in 1997 to address the unwarranted variation research done by Dr. John Wennberg and The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. Dr. Wennberg's research found that the amount of healthcare services consumed per capita varies significantly between different regions of the United States, and that areas that deliver more care or higher-cost care do not necessarily show improvements in health quality outcomes. The company seeks to reduce unwarranted variation in the U.S. healthcare system through care management and shared decision making.
