Improved hospital hygiene using real-time tracking of medical products – Alert systems enables hospitals to operate as normal, despite coronavirus – Munich (ots)
Clinaris GmbH, which specialises in digital solutions for hospitals and care homes, has successfully concluded its Series D financing round, thereby gaining new investors in the form of well-known family firms. The company based in Garching near Munich raised a total of EUR 2.6 million in order to continue its growth trajectory of recent years.
Its new investors include the two family firms Tertium and Kalodion. “We’re delighted to have gained such high-profile and experienced investors. The confidence they have shown in us also demonstrates the huge potential of our digital solutions for the legally-compliant management and documentation of hygiene measures in hospitals,” says Thorsten Amann, CEO and Co-Founder of Clinaris GmbH.
“Thanks to the continued support of our existing investors and the commitment of Tertium and Kalodion, we can rigorously implement our long-term growth strategy and consolidate our market position. In a few years’ time, digital hygiene solutions in combination with a state-of-the-art device tracking system will be standard in hospitals and care homes,” adds the Clinaris CEO. The capital from the financing round will be used to drive expansion as well as to further reinforce its national and international sales teams. By late 2021, customer projects will be implemented in all major western European markets, as well as important locations such as Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore and Bangkok.
Clinaris co-Founder Amann is confident that the current Covid-19 pandemic will further increase the significance of innovative hygiene solutions. “Demand for our IoT application, Hospital Process Management (HPM), shows that we’re on track to become the leading provider of real-time hygiene and process optimisation systems.” The mobile HPM application provides hospitals and care homes with a constant overview of the devices, beds and staff deployed. The respective hygiene measures can be managed, controlled and documented in real time, thanks to the very latest tracking technology. This allows establishments to meet the Medical Device Regulations (MDR) in a legally compliant manner.
Based on the HPM system that has been tried and tested in clinical use, Clinaris has also adapted a technology for the coronavirus-related social distancing requirements in hospitals and care homes. This alert system ensures that a minimum distance is maintained between staff, patients and visitors. If there is an outbreak of Covid-19 in a facility, the chain of infection can be easily traced.
The financing round was coordinated by Florian Aigner from the Munich law firm Emnay and Dietmar Thiele from the Berlin Office of the M&A consultancy Network Corporate Finance.
