Korian supports Medicalib in the development of the first smart assistant for home care health professionals

Korian is forging an innovative partnership with the start-up Medicalib, by taking a minority stake in the company's capital alongside its founders and Day One Entrepreneurs and Partners. This partnership aims to continue the digital developments carried out in 2019 intended to facilitate outpatient and home care for fragile and dependent people and to enable effective coordination of the healthcare professionals working with them.

Through this partnership, Korian will complete its ecosystem of digital and innovative solutions designed to streamline the care process for elderly and fragile persons.

Medicalib has developed a platform to bring patients and home care professionals (nurses, physiotherapists, midwives) together, with the help of a geolocation system that allows a home visit to be confirmed in less than an hour. This system has a database of 10,000 state-registered private care professionals in 1,200 towns and cities, and has already processed more than 220,000 requests for care since it began.

«We are very pleased to contribute to the development of this young, innovative and agile company. We started working with Medicalib in 2019, and we are convinced of the relevance and effectiveness of their solution to facilitate access to care for the elderly from their homes and to support private nurses, who are important players in urban care, in their day-to-day management. We look forward to working with the management team to develop their platform and help build bridges with our network of specialised clinics, Hospital Home Care (HHC) and home care," said Olivier Lebouché, Managing Director of Korian Home & New Services.

In conjunction with Korian Solutions, the Group's internal digital agency, the platform will help to streamline the hospital discharge process for patients and provide the best possible support for Hospital Home Care (HHC) services and Oriane, Korian's global digital home services solution.
