Celo and MedApps join forces with a new innovative partnership.

Healthcare technology companies Celo and MedApps have joined forces to offer their solutions in a new partnership model. The two companies, whose services are incredibly complementary, will now work together to provide their customers with a wider and more extensive offering of the two platforms.

MedApp is an offline-accessible, mobile-first tool for accessing clinical and hospital guidelines, communicating with clinicians, and facilitating education and training. Celo’s secure healthcare messaging app makes it easy for teams to communicate, enabling compliant and efficient messaging for better patient care while removing the non-compliant use of WhatsApp and other consumer messaging tools that often creep into the healthcare setting.

“We’re super excited to finally formalise our partnership with MedApps. I’ve known Rob and Tom for a few years now and have always admired the great work they are doing to make healthcare professionals feel confident and efficient in how they deliver great care. To partner with such an innovative company whose values are so closely aligned with ours is a no brainer.”

Celo Founder and CEO Steve Vlok

With Celo’s expansion into Australia and the United Kingdom, the two organisations are very well placed to work together as they rapidly scale their offerings across the globe and into new markets.

“The ability for clinicians to communicate quickly and effectively without compromising personal health information has been a challenge throughout my clinical career. Steve and the Celo team have developed a fantastic platform solving a direct and real problem for clinicians and organisations. We have been careful about our corporate partnerships but the relationship we have built up with Celo and the approach we are both taking to solve problems in hospitals and healthcare, it just makes complete sense. We are looking forward to building on this through 2021 and beyond.”
