Tunstall Healthcare, a provider of software solutions and technology for the telecare and telehealth markets, has acquired Secuvita, a technology solution provider in the Netherlands for an undisclosed fee.

Doncaster-headquartered Tunstall says this deal comes during a rapid acceleration in the adoption of digital health and remote monitoring systems worldwide, and demonstrates its commitment to its global strategy.

And it adds the acquisition will allow pioneering healthcare solutions to be provided across the Netherlands, benefiting up to 70,000 existing Secuvita users.

Gordon Sutherland, CEO of Tunstall Group, said: “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.”

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 designs, manufactures and sells monitoring units, sensors and software in regions of the world, enabling the elderly, frail or the chronically ill to continue living independently and reducing social care and hospital visits or medical attention.

In recent years, the business has grown substantially and evolved from an equipment provider to a software solution and technology company that provides telehealth and telecare managed services.

It has almost doubled the number of users managed by its systems, while increasing its geographic footprint across Europe.

Tunstall now operates in 22 countries globally and supports more than five million end users through its technology and service offerings.
