Zava enters telemedicine partnership with Asda

European digital healthcare provider Zava has announced a major partnership with supermarket giant Asda to provide telemedicine services for Asda Online Doctor patients across the UK.

Patients can use the service to access treatment across a range of areas, including women’s health, sexual health and chronic conditions such as asthma, by filling out a short questionnaire online. This is then reviewed by a qualified doctor and where necessary, prescriptions are delivered free of charge to the patient’s home or made available for collection from an Asda pharmacy.

Zava founder and CEO David Meinertz said: ‘By partnering with Asda, we create real added value for patients across the UK. We drive the best possible medical care for patients and connect them with Asda pharmacies across the UK. With this new offer, we are fulfilling patient demand for contemporary digital solutions.’

London-based Zava raised $32m in Series A funding round in 2019 to accelerate its growth in the UK, Germany and France. The company, which acquired German B2B video conferencing platform and Berlin based telemedical provider Medlanes in January, said it had delivered more than 5 million medical consultations over the last decade.
