Healthways gets another overseas deal

Healthways Inc. (Ticker: HWAY) today announced another international deal, this time to provide health support and chronic care management services to members of private Australian insurer Teacher's Health Fund.

The Franklin-based company, in conjunction with its Healthways Australia subsidiary, will work with up to 200,000 of the nonprofit insurer's members. Healthways Australia has already enrolled more than 25,000 Australians in its chronic care management program through its work with Hospital Contributions Fund.

Today's deal is the latest in Healthways' continued international expansion push. Last month the company landed a deal to work with overseas military personnel.
