MALVERN, PA — BioTelemetry, Inc. (NASDAQ: BEAT), the leading remote and wireless medical technology company focused on the delivery of health information to improve quality of life and reduce cost of care, and Geneva Healthcare, Inc. (“Geneva”), the leading provider of remote monitoring for implantable cardiac devices are pleased to announce that the companies have entered into a definitive merger agreement whereby BioTelemetry will acquire Geneva.
An early stage company, Geneva has developed a proprietary cloud-based platform that aggregates data from the leading device manufacturer systems, enabling the company to remotely monitor all of a physician’s patients with implantable cardiac devices such as pacemakers, defibrillators and loop recorders. Geneva’s platform provides physicians a single portal to order patient monitoring, view monitoring results and request routine device checks, helping drive significant in-office efficiencies and patient compliance while allowing physicians to focus on patient care.
Joseph H. Capper, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioTelemetry, commented: “We are extremely excited about the combination of these two market-leading, technology-enabled service providers. Just as we revolutionized remote cardiac outpatient monitoring, with our MCOT service and platform, Geneva is transforming the way physician offices consolidate and manage the monitoring of implantable cardiac devices. We believe the enhanced offering this merger creates will provide tremendous benefit to the thousands of clients we serve and will further solidify our leadership position in remote cardiac monitoring.”
Yuri Sudhakar, Chief Executive Officer of Geneva added, “We are excited to join forces with a company that has established sustained success as a healthcare service provider in the same market that we serve. Cardiology providers are looking for strategic solutions to improve patient care and workflow. We provide these solutions by leveraging technology to deliver better patient care and a better patient experience. We think this powerful combination of complimentary tech-enabled services provides Geneva the necessary resources to significantly expand our reach in the over $1.0 billion domestic implantable cardiac device monitoring market, delivering the much-needed benefits of our technology and service to cardiac practices, physicians and patients.”
In 2018, their first full year of commercialization, Geneva generated approximately $6 million of revenue and reached profitability by year-end.
