Letter from the Management
Dear Customers, Friends and Business Partners,
Big results require big ambitions“, the Greek philosopher Heraclitus once said. Today, FairMed Online has taken a significant and ambitious move towards delivering great results and its future growth. We are proud to announce that the renowned medical tourism provider Caremondo is now part of the FairMedOnline family. The acquisition poses the gateway to one of the fastest growing fields in global medical healthcare – Medical Tourism – with growth perspectives exceeding 200 billion Euros by 2020. Therewith, we strengthen our global position as a leading digital healthcare company striving to make world-class medical advice and services accessible to all.
Entering this prospering market is our response to the ever-increasing international demand for easy, transparent, independent and affordable medical care, which is driven by ageing populations, increased global mobility and insufficient medical systems. And it is a reaction to patients reaching out to us who were not only seeking a neutral medical second opinion but for subsequent treatments, too.
Given the complementary nature of the two businesses, we are now in a position to act as a full-service provider for medical healthcare for patients around the globe. Our services will cover neutral second opinions through our network of German and soon international medical specialists to be complemented by the respective medical treatment. This is a tremendous development bearing numerous opportunities, not only for our patients, but also for you as our shareholder, partner or supporter.
Caremondo has already established an excellent reputation in the medical travel market and was honoured for its success story twice in 2016 by reputable industry authorities. It built a state-of-the-art technical platform, engaged in trustful relationships with more than 160 prominent international clinics and healthcare institutions and served 15,000+ patients in need for medical advice and care. An incredible track record!
Please join us in thanking the team at Caremondo for its fantastic work during the past two years. We are excited to take over the reins and continue writing this success story with a strong business, professional partners and a focus on pushing for change while embarking on this thrilling new phase in our yet young company history.
