Sesame Communications joins Internet Brands’ health portfolio, which includes Officite, eDoctors, TherapySites, iMatrix, and Baystone Media.

Sesame Communications’ suite of patient-engagement and communications solutions include patient-scheduling and appointment-reminder systems, online bill pay and financial reminders, and portals that enable patients to view their appointments and online health histories. The company also offers traditional web presence services including website design, SEO, and social media support.

Sesame Communications will continue to operate from its Seattle headquarters following the acquisition. The company was represented by Cascadia Capital LLC in the transaction.
