Proposed acquisition of EMIS Group

EMIS Group acquires Edenbridge Healthcare

20 Jan 2022

EMIS Group has today acquired primary care data and analytics specialist Edenbridge Healthcare, based in Wakefield.

The acquisition strengthens EMIS’s ability to support under-pressure primary care services through the post-Covid recovery, and to drive the future transformation of the NHS.

Founded in 2014, Edenbridge is a leading provider of near real-time insights to primary care. Its APEX software supports over 1,000 GP practices and organisations such as Primary Care Networks (PCNs) and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to:

  • Work more efficiently by gaining a detailed understanding of appointment capacity and demand, predicting future demand and identifying activity patterns such as DNAs (Did Not Attends) and frequent attenders to help improve access to GP services;
  • Deliver population health insights to support the planning of services tailored to the needs of local people, including rich insights into the prevalence of long-term conditions;
  • Enable better workforce planning by highlighting the types of patients accessing services, their attendance frequency and the healthcare professional delivering care.

The Edenbridge deal follows EMIS’ successful acquisition of Pinnacle Health Partnership LLP and Pinnacle Systems Management Ltd in 2020. Using Pinnacle’s widely-used Outcomes4Health pharmacy system, EMIS was able to power and record more than 75 million Covid vaccinations in England in the first year of the vaccination programme.
