NHS technology provider Medisec Software has been acquired by Dublin-based Clanwilliam Group in a drive to support digitisation ambitions across the UK health service.
Cheshire-based Medisec Software, which has been working with NHS organisations for 25 years to digitise clinical correspondence and dictation, is the 13th company to join Clanwilliam Group in the last three years.
Some 15,000 primary and secondary healthcare professionals in England currently rely on Medisec products. Being part of Clanwilliam Group will help Medisec to spread its reach to other parts of the country, whilst at the same time allowing the company to continue to provide a consistent service to its existing customers in the NHS.
Ceri Rothwell, managing director at Medisec Software, said: “This is a tremendous opportunity to expand and improve the ways we support the NHS, at a crucial time of digital transformation in the health service.
“Joining Clanwilliam Group will allow Medisec to access a huge wealth of experience, technical expertise and resource as we work alongside other health technology providers in the group, exploring integration and collaboration opportunities. At the same time we will retain our distinct leadership, our experienced teams and the trusted brand that Medisec customers rely on.”
All Medisec contracts, support and contact information will remain unchanged following the acquisition. It is also anticipated collaboration with the expansive network in the group will help to significantly boost Medisec’s product development into the future.
Other businesses within Clanwilliam Group include Bluespier, Maxwell Stanley Consulting, Clanwilliam Health, Toniq, Medical Business Systems, Medical Management Services, Claimsure and Epic Solutions.
Businesses under Clanwilliam Group are now helping to reduce the deficit in NHS trusts by approximately £14m annually.
Howard Beggs, CEO of Clanwilliam Group said: “Clanwilliam Group’s growth strategy across the UK is to actively develop a group of highly synergistic healthcare technology and services businesses. We back leadership, and select companies who are already driving innovation in the healthcare industry and which, with the right support, have the potential to transform the healthcare landscape even further.
“All companies within the group remain independently committed to developing their respective flagship products and services, but as part of Clanwilliam Group, each benefits from synergies of shared knowledge and expertise, that can in turn be passed on to customers and ultimately patients.
“Medisec Software is an instant fit, providing cleverly integrated technologies with a long-term commitment to helping NHS organisations through their digital transformation. We are looking forward to working with Ceri and her team to build on the success already achieved.”
