Doctor Care Anywhere enters Australian telehealth market with acquisition of GP2U Telehealth Pty Ltd
We are very pleased to expand our international business and welcome the GP2U Telehealth team to the Doctor Care Anywhere family. GP2U Telehealth Pty Ltd is a leading provider of virtual GP services through the brand GP2U and tele-mental health services through the Psych2U brand.
Dr Bayju Thakar, CEO of Doctor Care Anywhere explains more about why this is such a significant moment for both businesses.
“This acquisition represents another important milestone for Doctor Care Anywhere; giving us a platform on which to build our presence in the Australian market and further expand our international business. It will give GP2U the support it needs to make a real difference in supporting patients, particularly those in rural and remote regions, access to high quality virtual GP care and, in particular, support existing GP practices in the provision of tele-mental health. Both service lines are ideally suited to the innovative and responsive applications provided by a telehealth approach especially where the geographical distance between clinician and patient is prohibitive.
Building on our significant growth, we believe that this is the right time to be expanding our tele health activity internationally to serve and care for more patients through the strategic acquisition of GP2U Telehealth and we are very excited to be entering the Australian market.”
