Healthtech firm expands European reach with acquisition of German telemedicine platform
A London-based healthtech company has continued its European expansion with the acquisition of a German firm.
Tech specialist HealthHero has acquired Berlin-based telemedicine platform Fernarzt.com, which offers online consultations to users.
Headquartered in London and backed by pan-European investment house Marcol, HealthHero will initially operate in the UK, Germany and Republic of Ireland.
The firm aims to offer 24/7 access to doctors and specialist clinicians via a suite of tools including video calls, online chats and phone.
Ranjan Singh, CEO of HealthHero commented, “The world has changed, but healthcare is failing to keep up. Digital can provide the solution, but it has not yet succeeded. We are here to change that.
What HealthHero offers is a fully holistic healthcare option. By bringing together digital convenience with real human expertise we can deliver a seamless experience which provides clinical consultations from a multidisciplinary team of GPs, specialists, musculoskeletal practitioners and mental health practitioners without leaving your sofa.“
