Nijmegen, May 31, 2021
As of May 2021, CbusineZ will join Orikami Group BV, alongside existing investor Healthy.Capital. Both investors enable Orikami to roll out the product MS sherpa to clinical practice and also accelerate the development of new products for other syndromes.
“The synergy of both investors enables us to accelerate our ambitions”, – says Orikami CEO Bram den Teuling. “We are very pleased to see that our added value in caring for people with neurological disorders is recognized.
Digital biomarkers – validated measurements on which doctors and patients can actually take action – have great potential to personalize care and thus also the outcomes of the care process. Globally, Orikami has uniquely positioned itself in recent years to continue to play a leading role in this young market.”
“We are very excited about this collaboration. With the help of Orikami’s Digital Biomarkers, doctors gain a greatly improved insight into a patient’s clinical picture. This gives them more prospects for action and enables them to optimize the treatment. This leads to better treatment outcomes and lower costs in the system,” – says Rogier van der Hooft, Board of Directors of CbusineZ.
Douwe Jippes, managing partner at Healthy.Capital: “In our view, Orikami is one of the Dutch digital health companies with great potential to improve healthcare. The entry of CbusineZ endorses our vision. It is crucial to involve healthcare professionals, patients and health insurers in the rollout of healthcare innovations.”
