Jameda has collected 15,000 euros for the medical organisation "Doctors without Borders" and the Corona Emergency Relief Fund of the "German Red Cross" with a unique fundraising campaign.
Hubert Burda Media, a globally operating media and tech company, is selling its online health marketplace Jameda to the healthcare unicorn Docplanner. The transaction will be fully active from January 1, 2022.
Jameda’s suite of solutions includes tools for patients to find the best physicians, easily book an appointment and see their provider in person or via video consultation. Burda acquired the e-health company, founded in 2007 and managed by Florian Weiß and Fritz Edelmann, in 2015.
Burda CEO Paul-Bernhard Kallen said: "The health sector is an important growth area for Burda and Jameda, Germany's biggest online health marketplace, has been able to claim a leading position in this market for many years. Starting as a communication platform, Jameda is increasingly transforming into a company that offers software solutions for the digitalisation of doctors' practices. We are therefore pleased that, together with the management, we have found a new owner in DocPlanner that will continue Jameda's successful path and expand the business internationally."
Founded in Poland, Docplanner operates globally with more than 1,800 employees from seven locations. The company is the largest online healthcare marketplace in the world and a leading provider of SaaS solutions for around 2 million healthcare professionals and over 100,000 customers worldwide. Nearly 70 million patients use the platform each month. Docplanner will add more than 200 new team members to Jameda, investing more than a quarter of a billion euros in the German market over the next 2 to 3 years.
