Leading software and service solution for independent healthcare professionals

Sofia Développement (“the Company”) is a vertical software and service solution dedicated to independent healthcare professionals resulting from the combination of three complementary solutions: merger in 2019 of IDEA (Topaze and Télévitale) and SNAL (Albus), two teletransmission software and invoicing solutions, followed by the acquisition in 2022 of Comptasanté, one of the leading online accounting player exclusively dedicated to medical and paramedical professionals.

The Company supports over 31,000 healthcare professionals, including more than 19,000 independent nurses, 6,000 physiotherapists and 300 nursing centres, equipping them with its teletransmission software, patient and practice management tools as well as invoicing and accounting tech-enabled services.

The Company has four operating offices across France and employs over 190 people; all of whom are led by CEO, Geoffroy Lapointe and Jean-Marc Salvan, Chairman of the Strategic Committee and Founder of IDEA.

IK Partners acquired a stake in Sofia in March 2022, joining existing shareholders, Extens, Capital Croissance and Bpifrance.
