Tunstall Healthcare acquires Dutch organisation Secuvita
UK-based provider of software solutions, services and technology for the telecare and telehealth markets Tunstall Healthcare has announced the acquisition of Secuvita, a technology solution provider in the Netherlands for an undisclosed fee.
Following the rapid acceleration in the adoption of digital health and remote monitoring systems worldwide during the pandemic, the acquisition is a demonstration of Tunstall’s commitment to its global strategy. The organisation will harness the combination of technology, aligned with service delivery, to optimise all opportunities for society as it drives health and social care into the digital age.
Gordon Sutherland, CEO of Tunstall Group, commented: “I’m delighted to announce the acquisition of Secuvita by Tunstall. Patrick Gaasbeek and the team at Secuvita have built a strong company based on similar values to Tunstall; a strong collaborative approach to our customers, high levels of accountability and a drive for continuous innovation and service.
“This approach coupled with the Tunstall Cognitive Care® programme, will offer our customers in the Netherlands an excellent opportunity to explore new ways of delivering enhanced health and social care in a highly efficient manner.
“The Tunstall Cognitive Care shifts our business model to heightened levels of ‘proactive care’ where data is integrated from multiple sources and analysed through unique algorithms to notify healthcare professionals of any changes in behaviour of the end user.”
The acquisition will allow pioneering healthcare solutions to be provided across the Netherlands and will benefit up to 70,000 existing Secuvita users.
Patrick Gaasbeek, Director and owner of Secuvita, said: “We are pleased to be a part of the Tunstall Group which is renowned for its innovation in the sector, and for producing products and solutions of superior quality. Our customers, clients and employees will benefit hugely from the acquisition as we will be able to offer an increased volume of services and specialist solutions to meet health care needs.”
Tunstall integrates smart technology with monitoring and support services to give individuals increased independence, improved quality of life and wider choice in their care options.
Tunstall designs, manufactures and sells monitoring units, sensors and software in six key regions: UK and Ireland, the Nordics, Spain, France and Benelux, DACHME, and Australasia that enables the elderly, frail or the chronically ill to continue to live independently and to reduce social care and hospital visits or medical attention.
Tunstall Healthcare has been working with Carmarthenshire County Council’s Delta Wellbeing team to launch a UK-first telecare service. This service has reduced social isolation and avoided hundreds of ambulance callouts during the COVID-19 pandemic.
