Avelios Medical closes funding round to digitize German hospitals

November 2, 2021

  • The 2 million Euro financing round is led by Revent, further investors are High-Tech Gründerfonds and renowned business angels
  • The Munich-based startup digitizes workflows in hospitals with innovative software and enables data-driven patient care

Munich, November 2, 2021 – Avelios Medical, a modular software platform for the digitization of workflows in hospitals and data-driven patient care, has closed a seed funding round of 2 million Euro from Revent, High-Tech Gründerfonds and the founders of Amboss and Oviva.

To address the lack of digitization in healthcare, Avelios has developed a modular software platform that digitizes and optimizes processes in hospitals with state-of-the-art software in a user-friendly way. For example, Avelios’ outpatient and ward module digitize all workflows and enable a fully digital documentation of patient care with innovative features such as an automatically generated doctor’s letter or intelligent input fields.

The company will use the fresh capital to further accelerate the ongoing rollout of the Avelios software in various hospitals as well as the development of additional software modules.

Avelios Medical was founded in 2020 by Nicolas Jakob, Dr. Sebastian Krammer and Christian Albrecht with the vision of becoming the leading software platform for the data-driven digitization of patient care.

AI can fundamentally improve healthcare, but only based on structured data that currently does not exist. Avelios is deliberately digitizing patient care in a way that precisely this missing structured data can be automatically generated and its full potential realized.

Nicolas Jakob, Co-Founder Avelios Medical

Digitizing healthcare to improve patient care is more necessary than ever, and hospitals often lag particularly far behind when it comes to digital workflows and the use of modern software. This leads to extremely inefficient processes, disconnected legacy systems, and a complete lack of useful digital data.

The frustration with incredible inefficiencies and inadequate software solutions that I’ve experienced as a physician myself is the biggest motivation to continually develop software that solves this big problem.

Dr. Sebastian Krammer, Co-Founder Avelios Medical

In addition to the fundamental digitization of workflows, the innovative Avelios software automatically generates fully structured treatment data. This enables data-driven research, business intelligence and billing, as well as the direct integration of AI algorithms to exploit enormous, previously untapped potential. In addition, the modular platform approach enables flexible interfaces to existing legacy systems as well as the integration of modern software solutions and devices.

It’s unbelievable that something as important and big as healthcare has such dramatic deficits in digitization. Our mission is to become the digital backbone of hospitals and enable data-driven healthcare.

Christian Albrecht, Co-Founder Avelios Medical

Added value for hospitals

The Avelios software offers several concrete benefits for hospitals. Digitized workflows and a fast, complete documentation significantly increase process efficiency and employee and patient satisfaction. A low implementation effort, complete modularity and interoperability, and continuous updates are further very attractive for IT departments in hospitals. The software is already successfully in use in the outpatient clinic and laboratory at the LMU Klinikum in Munich, and Avelios is currently rolling out its solution in other hospitals and departments.

We see enormous potential in Avelios to fundamentally improve the quality of treatment in hospitals. The unique modular software platform enables hospitals to build a modern and scalable IT infrastructure without implementation effort.

Henrik Große Hokamp, Partner Revent

In many hospitals processes are still pen- and paper based. We believe that the digital revolution in hospitals will accelerate and that the strong Avelios team has what it takes to become a major player in this field.
