Main Capital Partners acquires Finnish virtual healthcare specialist VideoVisit

Stockholm / Vantaa
20 April 2022

 

Software investor Main Capital Partners (“Main”) today announces the acquisition of a majority stake in VideoVisit, a leading provider of software services for virtual healthcare and online consultations. VideoVisit represents the first platform investment for Main in the Finnish market.

VideoVisit is a market leader in Finland with over 200 municipalities as customers, including Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, Tampere and Turku. VideoVisit provides a best-in-class software platform that is designed to digitalise both healthcare and social care visits. Its virtual care platform enables a wide range of healthcare services, including primary care, home care, home rehabilitation and disability services.

For home care the VideoVisit platform enables remote care services for people via video connection. Through its easily accessible platform, elderly clients and home care recipients can connect with doctors, care providers and even family members, to allow a longer, happier and improved quality of life at home.

The vast suite of solutions offered has been designed and perfected for easy use by patients, families and care providers alike, while complying with high security and data protection requirements within the healthcare sector.

 

Growing need for virtual care services

 

Main’s investment in VideoVisit highlights the growing importance and value-add of virtual care. The market for telehealth & telemedicine has rapidly grown in recent years as a result of COVID-19. This upward trend is predicted to continue to grow by 27% annually in the coming six years. This forecast is driven by several factors including the increasing adoption of technology, rising healthcare expenditure and an aging population demographic.

 

“VideoVisit’s solutions provide extensive benefits to both healthcare recipients and organisations more broadly. Our service is proven to be 85% more cost efficient than physical home care while also easing the workload for healthcare providers. More than 50 % of the virtual care visits on our platform are made by nurses who ensure that the correct medication is taken at the right time by their elderly patients. Travel time can also be saved and allocated to more demanding home care clients who absolutely require a physical presence.”

 

Juhana Ojala, Chief Executive Officer at VideoVisit

 

Digital solutions to fight elderly loneliness

 

VideoVisit’s software was initially developed by Ojala’s family to improve communication with a sick relative who lived very far away. VideoVisit has since enjoyed rapid growth and success, establishing itself in the Finnish home care market as a leading solution to help elderly people fight loneliness and increase their personal safety.

The platform is easy to access via a special tablet that is always on standby, making it straightforward for the elderly to connect with their care providers whenever they may need assistance. The solution also promotes social interaction, such as group dining sessions, so that nurses can ensure their elderly patients eat properly and enjoy social interaction.

VideoVisit is currently exploring multiple growth opportunities, with the support of Main, by offering complementary solutions to existing customers in the Finnish market and through an internationalisation strategy including both partnerships and selective buy-and-build acquisitions.

 

 

“Main has extensive experience within the healthcare market through our existing portfolio companies including SDB Group and Enovation in the Benelux and Alfa eCare in the Nordics. We look forward to deploying this knowledge to further strengthen VideoVisit’s position in the European virtual care market. With the support of Main, VideoVisit can develop and improve its service offering and communication capability meaning the company can deliver even more added value to its customer base.”

The UK uses technology against the coronavirus – chooses Finnish VideoVisit to support the elderly isolated at home

 

In March, the UK Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) and The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) announced that funding would be available to innovators who can find digital ways to support people who need help during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. This ‘Techforce19’ challenge aims to support those who are particularly vulnerable or isolated as a result of the outbreak and need help, including people who need mental health support or who have social care needs.

 

The NHSX, which is responsible for the digitalization of public social and health services in the United Kingdom, has been working with partners PUBLIC and the AHSN Network to run the fast-track competition for innovators, creating a pool of ready to go technologies that have the potential to be rapidly scaled regionally and nationally.

 

Through ‘Techforce19’ challenge, NHSX chose Finnish VideoVisit® HOME remote care platform to support the daily lives of elderly people who have been isolated at home because of the coronavirus.

 

In the application process, 18 different solutions were selected from among 1 600 service providers. VideoVisit was the only solution chosen from outside the UK. With the help of the remote care platform, the NHSX wants to support communication in particular between the vulnerable elderly, their relatives and caretakers. With VideoVisit, it is possible to make home care visits via a secure remote connection. In addition, elderly persons using the service will be able to have video connections with their loved ones.

 

According to VideoVisit’s CEO Juhana Ojala, the strength of the service lies not only in its ease of use, but also in its humane dimension.

 

VideoVisit cannot be compared to traditional telemedicine or conference services, for example. VideoVisit is a door to the world for the person taken care of at home. It brings together the nursing staff, the client living at home, who needs regular care, and his loved ones.

 

JUHANA OJALA

CEO, VideoVisit Oy

 

VideoVisit is already Finland’s leading remote care service platform. In Finland, the easy-to-use service designed for the elderly is already in use in half of Finland’s municipalities and with thousands of home care customers. Moreover, the company is currently in the process to internationalize. The possibility to join the TechForce-19 project will open an important route for VideoVisit to the UK market, where the company works closely with locally based Nursebuddy.

 

Nursebuddy, a key partner for VideoVisit on TechForce19 initiative, has established its position as a trusted solution not only in Finland but also in the UK and Ireland. Nursebuddy enables homecare managers to plan and manage visits effortlessly remotely. The aim of the business collaboration is to expand the remote care service to Nursebuddy’s customer organizations in the UK, and to further integrate both solutions together.

 

The coronavirus has increased the need for remote care for the elderly to a whole new level. Home care service providers are deploying services at a record rate to ensure the availability and quality of their services. In order to minimize the spread of the coronavirus to the at-risk group, as many visits as possible are transferred to remote visits. Similar developments are taking place throughout Europe.
