Medtech firm Doccla has acquired medically certified cloud-based platform OpenTeleHealth (OTH) giving the UK-based virtual ward provider an immediate global presence. No financial details of the deal have been disclosed. The OTH workforce will become part of Doccia.
Doccia was founded in 2019, it provides at-home health monitoring in an effort to keep patients out of the hospital. It posts out digital monitoring systems tailored to the needs of each patient monitoring vitals such as heart rate, respiration rate, body temperature, blood oxygen levels and blood pressure.
“Doccla and OTH have worked together for an extended period of time and I am delighted to take the next step in our relationship. We have found them a terrific and valuable partner since our founding, and our coming together means we can move at an even greater pace - to the benefit of patient outcomes across Europe. Doccla was founded in 2019 as a research project with the British NHS, and we’re now present in one in three UK healthcare systems, 10 European markets, and serve almost 10,000 patients; with some 4 million patient days monitored. We are now Europe’s leading virtual hospital and are looking forward to continuing to positively impact patient outcomes across the continent,” says Doccla CEO and co-founder Dag Larsson.
