In a significant development, OMRON Healthcare, a global leader in medical devices and health technology, has acquired Luscii Healthtech, a Dutch digital health company.

The deal, valued at an undisclosed amount, marks a strategic move by OMRON to expand its digital health offerings and strengthen its position in the healthcare market.

Since OMRON's seed investment in 2018, the two companies have collaborated closely, sharing knowledge and experience in the development of digital health.

Moreover, Luscii's integrated care network approach seamlessly connects various healthcare stakeholders, including general practitioners (GPs), hospitals, community care, and virtual ward call centers.

"Benefiting from OMRON's global network, we can expand faster and realize our ambition even faster. Both my cofounders and all other team members are really looking forward to this next step in our mission," noted Prof Daan Dohmen, CEO and founder of Luscii.

He also acknowledged that the Dutch company’s Luscii's Vision of ‘creating space for care’ aligns with OMRON's objectives.

“It's been our dream for every patient to get the attention they deserve," Luscii CEO added.
