Proposed acquisition of EMIS Group

EMIS Group acquires FourteenFish

17 Mar 2022

EMIS Group today announced its second acquisition of 2022 with the purchase of medical appraisals specialist FourteenFish.

Founded in 2012 by a GP and an IT specialist, FourteenFish is a UK-based technology company that supports over 100,000 healthcare professionals – including GPs, nurses and practice managers – with their continued professional development (CPD) and ongoing industry learning. It is the preferred appraisal toolkit partner for the Royal College of GPs (RCGP) and delivers the RCGP portfolio for trainee GPs.

The FourteenFish deal follows EMIS’ successful acquisition of primary care data and analytics specialist Edenbridge Healthcare in January this year. 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

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