Doktor24 Group, parent company of the healthcare provider Doktor24 and the healthtech company Platform24, changes its name to 24Health. The name change signals a broader focus and supports the company’s expansion in Europe. 24Health is today established in several markets, including Germany and the Netherlands. The subsidiaries Doktor24 and Platform24 remain under the current company name.
Doktor24 was founded in 2016 with Investor AB (the largest investment company in the Nordics) as the owner. In 2020, the state-owned pharmacy Apoteket AB became a new minority shareholder and in May 2021, the ownership was expanded with investment firms Stena Sessan and Ernströmgruppen. New capital of a total of SEK 400 million was provided, which in addition to an increased growth investment is used for further development of the digital platform and a broadened service and product development within chronic care.
– The challenges in healthcare are similar throughout the world with increasing care needs and lack of staff and resources. Our technology has shown clear evidence with large efficiency gains and a more coherent and accessible healthcare for our customers in Sweden. We see a huge demand for this type of solutions and our ambition is to become a leading health tech player in Europe while we broaden and expand the service and product portfolio with a strong focus on the Swedish market, says Daniel Lillienau, CEO of 24Health.
Today, more than 3 million patient interactions are carried out annually on the platform and the company is the leading health tech actor in the Nordic market. Platform24’s solutions are used by almost half of the regions in Sweden and among the customers are both healthcare enterprises and most major insurance companies.
Doktor24 is a digi-physical healthcare provider with health rooms and mini clinics in 60 pharmacies across Sweden. Together with Apoteket AB, a digital blood pressure treatment was recently launched, the first in a series of planned health services aimed at the care of chronic patients. In 2021, Doktor24 has also assisted several regions with Covid-19 vaccinations and ran until recently one of the larger vaccination centers in Stockholm.
– 24Health’s solutions for a digital front door to healthcare with a seamless flow throughout healthcare have shown very concrete efficiency improvements and relief of workload. The new name 24Health unites us as a company and also marks the start of our accelerated expansion in Europe, says Daniel Lillienau.
The healthtech company 24Health was founded in Sweden in 2016. Deeply rooted in healthcare, the founders had a vision to create a better model of healthcare.

The model for integrated care in a digital-first setting is improving access, lowering costs and is a trusted solution used by larger private and public healthcare providers and insurance companies.
