Evondos and Medido join forces to improve home care in Europe
Automated medicine dispensing makes it possible for people to live independent lives at home with improved medication management and patient safety. Both Evondos and Medido, experts in automated medicine dispensing, are now joining forces to meet the increasing demand for medicine dispensing services. The two companies will help more people across Europe and beyond with a broader offering.
Both founded in 2008, Medido and Evondos share the same vision of helping an ageing population to live independent lives at home. Automated medicine dispensing enables people in need of medical treatment to get the right medication at the right time and in the right dose automatically, which improves home care clients’ safety, medication adherence and quality of life. Evondos’ and Medido’s solutions reduce time spent by caregivers on routine tasks, freeing up more time for care and social interactions during home visits.
“We are a perfect match. Two companies with great teams and medicine dispensing service, working to improve quality of life and free up time in home care to the benefit of both home care clients and home care organizations. By combining our teams, technologies and services, we can handle the increasing demand for medicine dispensing from an ageing population and a home care system in need of resources,” says Eetu Koski, CEO of Evondos Group and continues.
“Lack of nursing staff combined with a growing population of elderly in need of daily support is a global phenomenon. Evondos’ and Medido's service make it possible for people to live independent lives at home with improved medical adherence, despite the lack of nursing resources. Together, we will help growing number of people across Europe and beyond with a better offering meeting a broader range of clients’ needs.”

By combining our capabilities, we can serve our customers with a tiered offering and even stronger expertise, and we can accelerate our international growth by entering new markets together.
