December, 8 2021 Further growth secured: Pflegeplatzmanager GmbH from Thüringen closes an investment round in the double-digit million range

An amount in the lower eight-digit range was raised from cur­rent share­hold­ers and new investors to fund Pflegeplatzmanager´s ambi­tious growth.

Pflege­platz­man­ager GmbH con­vinced a group com­pany of Deutsche Bal­a­ton AG — and other investors includ­ing Dr. Ste­fan Hoops (Head of Unternehmens­bank — Deutsche Bank) as new share­hold­ers. Addi­tion­ally, Treuen­burg Ven­ture Part­ners , a com­pany of the Erfurt Treuen­burg Group, and other exist­ing investors have increased their invest­ments, in some cases significantly.

“We are pleased that we were able to attract great part­ners to expand the share­holder base with the clos­ing of the financ­ing round. With the acquired finan­cial resources, we can meet the expec­ta­tions of the mar­ket, espe­cially with regard to dig­i­tal­iza­tion and the require­ments of the Hos­pi­tal Future Act in Ger­many. This brings us another step closer to our goal of pro­vid­ing sus­tain­able, pos­i­tive sup­port for the Ger­man health­care sys­tem — which also gives our cus­tomers great secu­rity,” stated Man­ag­ing Direc­tors Chris Schiller and Alexan­der Bauch in unison.

With its B2B plat­form, Pflege­platz­man­ager is cur­rently used by over 500 acute and reha­bil­i­ta­tion clin­ics through­out Ger­many. These include many uni­ver­sity hos­pi­tals and max­i­mum care providers. In addi­tion, the Thürin­gen com­pany is devel­op­ing the B2C plat­form to make it eas­ier for pri­vate indi­vid­u­als to find care sup­port for their rel­a­tives in the home set­ting. The com­pany oper­ates out of three loca­tions in Ger­many, in the cities of Greiz, Jena and Lauf a.d. Peg­nitz. More than 50 peo­ple are employed by Pflege­platz­man­ager at the afore­men­tioned locations.

By using Pflegeplatzmanager´s plat­form, hos­pi­tals and pri­vate indi­vid­u­als are net­worked with nurs­ing homes, out­pa­tient care ser­vices, inten­sive care facil­i­ties, pal­lia­tive care, short-term care, pre­ven­tive care, care author­i­ties, pro­fes­sional care­givers, care insur­ance com­pa­nies, as well as health insur­ance com­pa­nies, aid sup­pli­ers, ambu­lance ser­vices and care advice sources, among oth­ers. In this way, regional dig­i­tal health net­works are being cre­ated with the aim of pro­vid­ing the best pos­si­ble and most appro­pri­ate care for patients.

Pre­vi­ously, clinic staff had to make 40–50 calls (almost four hours of work­ing time) in most cases to find a suit­able next set­ting for patient care. Pflegeplatzmanager´s solu­tion reduces this effort con­sid­er­ably, avoids dou­ble and incor­rect entries through inno­v­a­tive inter­face tech­nolo­gies and ensures a com­pli­ance-cor­rect trans­fer process.

Torsten Pfeifer, Treuen­burg Ven­ture Part­ners: “I am pleased to have been able to accom­pany this suc­cess­ful busi­ness from the very begin­ning. Increas­ing our stake in Pflege­platz­man­ager is a clear and con­sis­tent step, not only because rapid fur­ther growth can be deliv­ered by the com­pany in the future, but also because Pflege­platz­man­ager pro­vides a real and sorely needed dig­i­tal solu­tion in hos­pi­tal dis­charge management.”

Karin Rabe, bm|t: “We have accom­pa­nied Pflege­platz­man­ager GmbH since its found­ing in 2018 as an investor from the very begin­ning and are thrilled with how, within three years, a pow­er­ful, high-per­form­ing com­pany with a dig­i­tal plat­form has quickly been cre­ated from the orig­i­nal busi­ness idea. The devel­op­ment of the com­pany has been suc­cess­ful not least thanks to the com­mit­ment of the two founders- A. Bauch and C. Schiller and the now more than 50 employ­ees. The devel­op­ment of the com­pany has far exceeded even our high expec­ta­tions — and the growth con­tin­ues unabated. We are  look­ing for­ward to work­ing with the new, very strong group of share­hold­ers, who will con­tinue to push the com­pany to ful­fil its great poten­tial,” said Karin Rabe, Senior Invest­ment Man­ager at bm‑t.
