By bringing together radiological, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy practices, evidia (previously "blikk") makes an important contribution to high-quality medical care. The practices are innovative partners for patients, physicians and cooperating hospitals.

Their pioneering role in closely combining outpatient and inpatient care is rooted in many years of collaborative experience with hospitals, offering both inpatient and outpatient imaging and nuclear medicine diagnostics to patients.

Managed by operasan, the nephrology business provides patients with the complete range of modalities and treatments, including dialysis.

evidia leverages ground-breaking technologies, equipment and methods and is continuously expanding its capacities and range of medical disciplines. evidia is well positioned to tackle the challenges arising from demographic change, technological disruption and new diseases. Key competitive differentiators include the practices’ ability to provide top-class imaging and diagnostics as well as highly efficient processes and appointments at short notice.

evidia is already the market leader in Germany in terms of the number of radiological examinations and findings. We are investing in a dynamic, innovative company with great growth potential and a clear strategic roadmap.

Potential for development

The transaction is intended to support the sustainable organic and inorganic growth of evidia in Germany. Network advantages are important arguments for further practices to join evidia. Both doctors and patients benefit from the exchange of knowledge between medical professionals in an expert network. In addition, the practices are better positioned to jointly invest in specialists and expert staff as well as in capital-intensive equipment technology and digital systems.

The medical core process in the practices is relieved by bundling and professionalising administrative tasks. This increases quality and effectiveness. Through strategic partnerships with equipment and software providers, the Group is already a digitalisation pioneer in the radiology market and is involved in the development of AI-supported standards for everyday practice.

All this also makes evidia's practices attractive partners within the framework of existing and new hospital cooperations.
