Canadian virtual healthcare and wellness platform Dialogue has recenlty announced the acquisition of certain assets of Koble, a digital health startup supporting women’s health. The acquisition includes Koble’s suite of proprietary content, software, and intellectual property, which will be integrated into Dialogue’s Integrated Health Platform (IHP). Swati Matta, Founder and CEO of Koble, will join Dialogue’s team as Head of Women’s Health, contributing her expertise in digital health and her commitment to equitable access to healthcare for all women.

With statistics indicating that 1 in 4 Canadian women in the workplace experience mental health challenges, the need for better support systems is evident. Dialogue recognizes the importance of prioritizing women’s health concerns and aims to provide holistic support through its virtual healthcare platform. Through this acquisition, Dialogue seeks to equip women with the resources they need to navigate important milestones such as pregnancy, postpartum recovery, and returning to work.

“We are very proud to strengthen our support for the health of all women, providing a holistic and centralized approach that has the patient at its core,” shares Jean-Nicolas Guillemette, Chief Operating Officer at Dialogue. “This aligns with how we currently help millions of Canadians improve their well-being.”

Koble’s content is developed by a multidisciplinary team of health experts such as OBGYNs, Pelvic Floor Physiotherapists, Lactation Consultants, and Sleep Consultants. Their expertise brings recommendations around mental health, nutrition and fitness, career, loss, labour and birth, physical recovery, and infant care, empowering all women and their families every step of the way.

“Providing all individuals across the spectrum of womanhood with the support and resources they need to address physical and mental stresses that come with all important stages of life, including family building, has important downstream impacts,” explained Dr. Stephanie Moynihan, Associate Medical Director at Dialogue. “Giving current and future mothers and parents key tools when they need them the most can help demystify, reassure, and empower them as they navigate pregnancy, parenting, and other important health milestones. A better understanding of the health concerns and needs of all women also helps reduce workplace stigma and societal taboos around women-specific health concerns.”

“A few years ago, I embarked on a mission to bring equitable access to healthcare to all women. This is an exciting new chapter, as we bring critical resources to support millions of women through both challenging and rewarding periods of their lives”, said Swati Matta, Founder and CEO of Koble. “I am thrilled to be joining the team at Dialogue to continue on this mission.”
