Digital health company HealthHero has acquired digital triage provider Doctorlink after global investor Eight Roads Ventures sold its stake.

Doctorlink provides care for more than 12.5 million patients in the UK across more than 1,500 GP surgeries in the NHS.

London-based HealthHero operates in the UK, Ireland and Germany, providing holistic digital healthcare services. The acquisition of Doctorlink adds online triage and health risk assessment to its services.

Ranjan Singh, co-founder and chief executive of 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.”

Rupert Spiegelberg, chief executive of Doctorlink, added: “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.”
