Evergreen Life acquires creators of online consultation company askmyGP



Wellness app Evergreen Life has announced the acquisition of Salvie Ltd, creators of the askmyGP online consultation and workflow system that connects patients with their GPs.

Mark Hindle, COO of Evergreen Life, said it will work collaboratively with askmyGP on a new platform, Evergreen Connect, to strengthen relationships with GP providers, Clinical Commissioning Groups, health boards and Primary Care Networks.

He said this will help them manage caseloads while empowering patients to be in control of their own health, care and wellbeing.

“We believe in putting the individual at the heart of their own healthcare, so people can be empowered to get the health and wellbeing they want and get access to support when they need it.

“AskmyGP is leading the way in person-centred solutions by making it easier for patients to talk to their own doctor and help GPs to prioritise and deliver care through message, phone and video.

“By working together and through the new Evergreen Connect platform, we can join up more areas of the health and care system as part of our mission to deliver People Powered Health.”

Evergreen Health Solutions Ltd was established in 2014 in Manchester by former clinical pharmacist, Stephen Critchlow.

The Evergreen Life app provides a way for people to access their electronic medical records and manage their patient services online, such as booking a doctor’s appointment at the tap of a button and ordering a repeat prescription with the option of free home delivery.

CEO and founder of askmyGP, Harry Longman, adds: “We are joining a company well-established in the healthcare technology industry and one we will complement in being able to offer more to patients, GPs and other healthcare providers.

“AskmyGP enables more than 200 GP practices around the UK to manage their workflow and respond to patient demand with outstanding service, 79% of requests resolved the same day.

“Patients will benefit from a wider range of services and communications with their GP, and through the Evergreen Life app will be able to take better control of their own health.

“Providers will benefit initially from integration with clinical systems across the full range of patient-facing services and better communications with patients through the app.

“As our products and services develop, they also gain from people taking control of their health, wellbeing and medical records.”
