Tunstall Healthcare has announced it is expanding its Connected Health solutions portfolio with the acquisitions of Kanayo Software Inc. and EWII Telecare. The acquisitions add core expertise in Software and App development for the healthcare market into Tunstall Healthcare's established global expertise in integrated health and social care.
Kanayo Software Inc is based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and was formed in 1999 to develop home telehealth solutions, chronic disease management systems, and clinical workflow technologies to help healthcare providers improve patient care and control escalating costs.
EWII Telecare is based in Odense, Denmark and develops healthcare products and tele-medical solutions for various patient groups with the aim of making it easy to be ‘admitted to your own home,’ focusing on user-friendliness. The company has over ten years of experience helping Business to Government (B2G) organisations, including hospitals and municipalities, to provide virtual healthcare and rehabilitation via telemedicine.
Gordon Sutherland, CEO of Tunstall Healthcare commented: "Tunstall Healthcare has pioneered the use of technology to enable independent living, creating Connected Healthcare solutions that support more than five million people and their families across the world. Adding Kanayo's proven software and app platforms, such as ICP triagemanager and myMobile, to Tunstall’s core capabilities in the health, housing and social care markets, support us in transforming clinical workflows to manage increasing demand by empowering people to self-care in the community.”
Ray Sweidan, CEO of Kanayo said; "Joining Tunstall Healthcare provides us with a fantastic opportunity to combine our life-changing technologies with Tunstall's global solutions infrastructure to provide even stronger capabilities and solutions to customers around the world."
Mr. Sutherland commented further; “The addition of EWII Telecare will increase Tunstall’s presence in Denmark and further strengthens our offer in the Nordic health market. The EWII Telecare Netcare solution complements our existing offerings for individuals with chronic conditions through connected health management in the home setting, and components will be integrated with our core ICP solution. The acquisitions of both Kanayo Software Inc and EWII Telecare demonstrate our commitment to the Connected Health market and position us for continued growth around the world.”
