Cera announces first international expansion into Germany

by Lisa Carr

Cera, one of the UK’s fastest-growing healthcare technology companies and the UK’s second largest healthcare at home company, today announces its first ever international expansion into Germany. The company is expanding its operations to continue in its mission to help people live longer, healthier and better lives in their own homes.

Cera will be delivering care and nursing services in people’s own homes across Berlin and Potsdam by empowering its team of 50 staff with advanced technology.

Cera’s pioneering and AI-powered app enables its team of professional carers and nurses to detect health deteriorations up to 30x faster than traditional methods, and reduce hospitalisations by up to 45 per cent among older communities. It’s app monitors service user’s vital signs, activity levels, sleeping patterns and nutrition, and advises their professional carer or nurse on the best course of medical action.

This international expansion is the first of many on Cera’s horizon following 100-fold growth over the past two years in reaction to increased demand throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

Dr Ben Maruthappu, CEO and co-founder of Cera, commented: “We’ve experienced rapid growth in the UK since our inception, and in particular over the past two years as we’ve looked to bolster our operations and support our UK communities through the pandemic. As a result of Covid-19, we’ve seen a significant acceleration in the demand for healthcare services to be delivered at home, rather than in hospitals, and we’re uniquely placed to use our technology to address this need. We’re incredibly excited to be increasing our footprint further afield into Germany, and we see this as the ideal springboard for continued internationalisation throughout Europe and beyond in due course.” 

Niklas Bruns and Falk Dietze, at Cera in Germany, commented: “We are honoured to be part of the Cera family, and the first to take the Cera name beyond international borders. We look forward to working in partnership with the team in the UK and growing our German footprint to continue in Cera’s mission to help elderly and vulnerable communities to live longer and better lives from the comfort of their own homes by using technology.”

Launched in November 2016, Cera has filled more than 10,000 jobs and delivers upwards of 40,000 in-person healthcare visits daily. The company has delivered more than 15 million home healthcare visits in just five years.
