Digital triage company Doctorlink has been acquired by a holistic healthcare provider.
Headquartered in London, HealthHero delivers 24/7 access to doctors and expert clinicians wherever and whenever it is needed via a suite of tools, including video calls, online chats and phone.
Doctorlink already provides care for more than 12.5 million patients in the UK across more than 1,500 GP surgeries in the NHS.
The digital triage provider was in a period of accelerated user acquisition before the announcement, having seen a 250% increase in its active user base and 900% growth in video consultations over the last nine months, while the number of GP clinics using the platform had tripled.
Rupert Spiegelberg, CEO of Doctorlink, said: “I am delighted that Doctorlink will be able to take the next step of its journey within the HealthHero family of companies, enabling it to offer a broader and deeper set of services to its customers and invest more in its world-beating technology platform.
“I have enjoyed every minute of what has been an incredible year for the company and believe we have found the right strategic fit for the business. With HealthHero’s unique and innovative approach to digital health delivery, my hope is this collaboration can help us embrace and move towards a future where healthcare is much more user-friendly and better for patient outcomes.”
The completion of the Doctorlink deal follows HealthHero’s recent acquisition of the Berlin-based telemedicine platform Fernarzt.
Ranjan Singh, CEO and co-founder at HealthHero, said: “This marks an exciting step for both Doctorlink and HealthHero. By working together, we aim to create the gold-standard in digital primary healthcare services by combining Doctorlink’s industry leading tech tools with our existing platform and best in breed clinical operations.”
