Salupro, a website that compares prices of health products for dental and veterinary clinics, has closed a €6M funding round with the aim of digitising the typical processes of the sector, investing in online marketing and expanding the business to other countries.
Clinicpoint received a €800,000 round in November this year. The business model of ClinicPoint (formerly known as Medprivé) is based on the arrangement of preferential prices with private doctors and clinics. The firm works with providers such as Grupo IDC-Quirón, Sanitas and Grupo Asisa. This company had previously received 2 rounds of investment, the amount raised amounts to €2M.
Although we did detect rounds in other sub-segments of activity such as Psious which applies virtual reality to the health sector, offering therapies using this technology, or NeurobiaResearch, a software to assess and rehabilitate patients with acquired brain damage and other neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's, using Microsoft's Kinect controller.
This year's acquisitions have been led by large technology companies seeking to offer services for the healthcare sector. In March, the Alcor group, an industrial group specialising in the creation and development of technology companies, acquired a majority stake in a company dedicated to the development of medical imaging technology to provide healthcare informatics tools in specialties such as oncology, vascularisation and prosthetics. ,
