Company

HealthHero is part of the Marcol portfolio, a private equity firm with a 44-year track record, helping businesses grow and succeed internationally. Marcol holds a diversified investment portfolio with interest in several sectors, including health care.

HealthHero is building one of the largest digital health players in the world with a combination of buy-and-build and scale up of an existing portfolio through organic execution. While there are multiple small players with specific offering in digital health, we have established that there is a very significant opportunity to build a scale player that provides a holistic, integrated offering in virtual primary care. The market timing is compelling, and the need is pronounced across multiple segments- some we are present in and others we are entering through further acquisitions.

We are looking to build a high caliber team to deliver this plan.

The Role of Virtual Consultations – a time for change

Covid-19 is a catalyst moment for primary care. On a scale never seen before, patients need remote clinical support. As a consequence, both patients and clinicians are becoming increasingly comfortable with remote consultations and enjoying the benefits they offer. It is therefore realistic to expect that this significant cultural change in accessing primary care is likely to persevere beyond the pandemic. HealthHero GPs benefit from the training, feedback and support to thrive during this time of change.

The role of our GPs is to provide clinical advice, reassurance and where appropriate, diagnosis and offer treatment options including prescriptions to patients by phone or video consultation. Following IMC best practice guidelines, our GPs consult with patients on an episodic basis across a broad spectrum of demographics and conditions from acute to chronic. Our top 5 clinical categories are dermatology, gastroenterology, ENT, MSK and urology.

Support

Our GPs all receive online training in remote consultations and are supported by our clinical governance board and 24/7 customer service and administration teams. Our Medical Director, Dr Chris Morris is on hand to support and guide GPs as necessary, with over 16 years training GPs, Chris is experienced and passionate about advancing effective patient care.
