Dedalus will expand its presence in the Spanish healthcare sector. The Spanish and Portuguese subsidiary of the Italian company, which specializes in digital health and clinical diagnostics, is working on setting up a new digital health research and development (R&D) hub in Barcelona, according to Marisa Felipe, CEO of Dedalus Iberia.

At the moment, the company has not defined the specific space in which this hub will be housed, a facility that Dedalus hopes will be transformed into a high-performance center to boost its data analytics solutions and the new open digital health history platform, as well as the development of disruptive projects for its clients in Europe and the rest of the world.

With a presence in more than forty countries, Dedalus has an R&D team specialized in digital health, made up of more than 2,500 people.

Spain is one of Dedalus’ main markets, a country in which it has more than 400 employees, and in which it will incorporate a hundred more in the next twelve months, according to the executive. The profiles required are experts in data platform, OpenEHR, digital pathology, chronic management, artificial intelligence (AI) for the improvement of surgical processes and clinical decision support and personalized medicine, among others.

The company has more than 400 professionals in Spain

Dedalus has centers of excellence in León, Madrid, Malaga, Madrid, Seville, and Valencia, where digital health solutions are designed and developed and marketed, and implemented worldwide.

Dedalus’ digital health solutions are used in the National Health System (NHS). Specifically, 80% of the autonomous health authorities work with one of them, exceeding thirty million people covered.

Dedalus systems manage more than 17 million electronic medical records in Spain, and it is a benchmark in the area of pathological anatomy. On a global scale, the company supports more than 6,100 hospitals and 5,300 laboratories.

In April 2021, Dedalus completed the acquisition of the ICT Health business of DXC Technology

Dedalus was founded in Florence in 1982 and founded by the company’s current president, Giorgio Moretti. In 2016, the company was acquired by the private equity fund Ardian, which currently holds a majority stake.

That same year, Dedalus decided to accelerate its expansion strategy targeting a growing demand for comprehensive and innovative solutions focused on the digital transformation of the healthcare ecosystem. With the acquisition of Agfa Healthcare IT, the group consolidated its position as a pan-European player in the healthcare ICT industry. In April 2021, the company completed the acquisition of DXC Technology’s Healthcare ICT business, in line with its growth strategy.

Currently, Dedalus has a presence in the UK and Ireland, Northern Europe, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, China, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, and several locations in Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa. The company turned over $794 million (€770 million) in 2021 on a global scale. The company does not disaggregate data by country.
