t+ Medical acquires Vivatec Ltd

16 July 2008

Oxford-based telecare company t+ Medical has acquired preventative telecare supplier Vivatec Ltd. The purchase of Vivatec will allow t+ Medical to expand by offering an integrated patient monitoring solution covering medical devices, communication technology and nurse call centres.

t+ Medical supplies mobile phone-based technology for capturing patient data for long-term condition management and clinical trials.

Vivatec is one of only 13 companies to be selected as a supply partner to the UK NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency (NHS PASA) for telecare products and services. The company supplies two of the three Department of Health funded Whole System Demonstrator projects that are evaluating remote monitoring technologies with 6,000 patients across the UK. The company will now further develop its position as a leading supplier of a complete spectrum of patient monitoring devices.

In a joint statement, Tim Clover, CEO of t+ Medical Holdings and Andrew Hall, founder and Managing Director of Vivatec said: "The combination of two successful companies creates a complete solution for both healthcare and drug discovery organisations. This acquisition enables t+ Medical to expand its current offering by adding an extensive range of medical device technologies to its remote patient monitoring solutions and ePRO technologies for clinical trials. The synergy between the two companies provides an ideal base from which to further deliver the benefits of mobile telephones in healthcare and we expect that this latest development will enable the rapid growth that we have experienced to continue."
