Funds advised by Bregal Unternehmerkapital (“BU”) have acquired a majority stake in medavis, a leading radiology workflow software provider.
medavis’ RIS (radiology information systems) software is central to radiological practices and clinical departments across the DACH region, where it is relied on for workflow optimization, process integration and networking. Its modular, scalable applications connect patients, radiologists as well as referring physicians, and provide the information they need reliably and securely at all times.
The future focus of the partnership between BU funds and medavis’ two founders, who have retained significant stakes in the business, will be on the further expansion of the company’s strong position in the core RIS market, continued geographical expansion, and strategic enlargement into neighboring business areas.
“medavis is the market leader for RIS software in the DACH region, and a company whose success has been built on innovation. We are confident that it will continue to innovate around its core product offering and lead the development of digital networking in the RIS sector,” says Dan Bender, co-founder of Code & Co.
Code & Co. provided Tech and Product Due Diligence to BU ahead of its acquisition of medavis, assessing the company’s core software offering, architecture and engineering processes. Code & Co. also assessed medavis’ ambitious product development roadmap, data and integration strategy, as well as growth plans.
Supporting BU in this acquisition underlines Code & Co.’s position as a leading Technology and Product Due Diligence provider on medical software mandates.
