Medtech Global, a leading medical technology company of New Zealand, has sold its Practice Management System (PMS) to Australasian healthtech advisory and investment company Acclivis Group and Advent Partners, a private Australian investment fund.

Financial details of the transaction have not been disclosed.

Medtech Global will retain its advance Practice Management Software and state-of-the-art solutions used by General Practitioners, Specialists, Allied Health worker and health organisations.

Founder and Executive Chairman Vino Ramayah said that the sale will allow him to restructure Medtech Global to meet the existing and emerging challenges of the market.

The Sales Process

Acclivis Group and Advent Partners were advised by Allier Capital during the sales process.

Cereus Holdings was advised by KPMG Corporate Finance in Brisbane and Maddocks during the sale process.

At the time of the sale, patient health and consumer portal Manage My Health was spun out of Medtech Global into Mr Ramayah’s investment firm Cereus Holdings Limited.

Mr Ramayah said that ‘Manage My Health’ has 700,000 users in New Zealand and a growing international footprint.

The personal health software enables people to manage their own health and well-being together with their GP and other healthcare providers.

“I am a firm believer in the democratisation of health. I also maintain strong interest in the development of cutting edge technologies in health. I am divesting from the wider business because it is time for new talent and leadership and further growth,” Mr Ramayah said.
