London-based pan-European investment house Marcol has joined forces with digital entrepreneur and investor Ranjan Singh to launch HealthHero, a holistic digital health provider operating in the UK, Ireland and Germany.
The new company delivers 24/7 access to doctors and experts via a suite of tools including video calls, online chats and phone.
HealthHero has also acquired Berlin-based telemedicine platform Fernarzt.com, which was set up in 2017 to provide online consultations in Germany. HealthHero already owns, UK-based Medical Solutions, which has more than 20 years’ experience in connecting patients with doctors remotely for insurance and corporate clients.
HealthHero chief executive Singh said: “The world has changed, but healthcare is failing to keep up. Digital can provide the solution, but it has not yet succeeded. We are here to change that, What HealthHero offers is a fully holistic healthcare option. By bringing together digital convenience with real human expertise we can deliver a seamless experience which provides clinical consultations from a multidisciplinary team of GPs, specialists, musculoskeletal practitioners and mental health practitioners without leaving your sofa.”
