Digital telehealth services provider HealthHero has completed the acquisition of Doctorlink, the London-based healthtech & medtech solutions Provider
The deal means that HealthHero is now believed to be Europe’s largest telehealth company, with its services covering over 20 million people across the continent.
A HealthHero spokesperson said that the organisation, which operates across the UK, Ireland and Germany, has seen a tenfold increase in revenue in 2020, fuelled by an increase in demand caused by the coronavirus pandemic, significant new client wins and strategic acquisitions in international markets and clinical areas such as mental health.
HealthHero provides its services through corporates and insurance providers, serving over 1,000 businesses, as well as the NHS. It merges separate disciplines such as GP, mental health and musculoskeletal consultations.
HealthHero CEO and founder Ranjan Singh (pictured) said 2020 has been a “transformational” year for the healthcare sector as a whole.
But he added: “Now the focus needs to be on ensuring that digital healthcare’s growth is focussed squarely on improving patient outcomes.
“Right now, we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to rebuild healthcare to be something that truly serves the patient, as well as practitioners and providers. To do that effectively as an industry, we need to focus on adopting a holistic approach to healthcare, rather than mimicking silos that exist already in both traditional and digital healthcare structures.
“Doctorlink’s team has an unparalleled track record in building best-in-class technology. By welcoming them into the HealthHero family, we can continue to break down these silos and marry digital convenience with clinical expertise.”
