Saudi company Arkan United acquired by Egyptian e-health startup Rology

Rology, the top provider of teleradiology in the Middle East and Africa has acquired Arkan United, a teleradiology company with its headquarters in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

In order to address the global shortage of radiologists, Amr AboDraiaa, Moaaz Hossam, Mahmoud Eldefrawy, and Bassam Khallaf founded Rology in October 2017. Rology has developed a cloud-based platform that intelligently matches patients with remote radiologists.

The startup’s technology allows radiologists to work from anywhere in the world as long as they have access to a laptop and an internet connection and can be launched with zero setup costs for hospitals as well as for radiologists.

Rology closed a pre-Series A round of funding in April to support its growth across the Middle East and Africa, and with the acquisition of Arkan United, it is now expanding into Saudi Arabia, which has the largest healthcare sector in the region.

“We’re excited to announce our acquisition of Arkan for medical services in Saudi Arabia. This acquisition allows us to accelerate our mission of bringing the latest innovations in teleradiology to healthcare providers and patients in the kingdom and beyond. By combining Rology’s cutting-edge technology and network with Arkan’s established expertise, we’re poised to revolutionise the field of teleradiology and improve patient care in unprecedented ways,” said Rology CEO Amr Abodriaa.

According to Tarik Baeshen, CEO of Arkan, Rology had the personnel and innovative approach that the Saudi healthcare system really needed.

“I am proud of what Arkan has done for the healthcare landscape in the kingdom, and I am eager to see Rology take it one step further,” he said.
