Cologne, 13 January 2016 – With an interest of eight per cent in HRTBT Medical Solutions GmbH, DocCheck Guano AG is expanding its portfolio of start-up businesses from the healthcare sector.
On 18 December 2015, Guano AG, a wholly-owned subsidiary of DocCheck AG, and High-Tech Gründerfonds acquired shares in HRTBT Medical Solutions GmbH based in Berlin. The company develops the web-based quality management software heartbeat ONE for patient-oriented documentation and evaluation of medical procedures. The software enables medical facilities to generate data for clinical trials in their everyday hospital life. The parties agreed to keep the purchase price confidential.
heartbeat medical solutions was founded by Yannik Schreckenberger, Marc Tiedemann, Sebastian Tilch and Yunus Uyargil in the beginning of 2014. All founders remain within the company, with Schreckenberger and Uyargil as Managing Directors, Tiedemann as Head of Product Development and Tilch as Technical Manager.
With their heartbeat ONE information system, the company aims to find a way to determine the success of surgical procedures. For financial reasons, such data are mainly collected during clinical trials. By merging the data from patients and the attending physicians, they want to promote medical knowledge and strengthen the relationship of trust. The software is already in use in five hospitals.
“We are pleased to have gained High-Tech Gründerfonds and DocCheck Guano AG as strong strategic partners,” says Yannik Schreckenberger. “Now we can concentrate on enhancing heartbeat ONE, making it the leading system in treatment quality assurance.” In particular, the investment will be used to build a distribution channel. In addition, a large-scale multicentre study is planned.
