Proposed acquisition of EMIS Group

EMIS Web most widely used GP system

21 Mar 2013

EMIS has announced a major landmark in the rollout of EMIS Web – over 2,000 GP practices have now upgraded to the transformational healthcare system. It is now the most widely used GP system in England.

The news – in the 2012 year end results for EMIS Group plc released today (21 March) – also means that EMIS Web is now the UK’s most widely-used hosted clinical system.

The Lydia House Practice in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, became the 2,000th practice to upgrade to EMIS Web when it switched from TPP’s SystmOne earlier this week.

GP Dr Jamail Sorouji said the new system was already cutting down consultation times ‘dramatically’ because it was so easy and intuitive to use.

He said: “EMIS Web allows us to work very quickly and accurately, saving several minutes per consultation.”

Neil Laycock, Managing Director of EMIS, said: “We are delighted to announce that EMIS Web, a leading-edge system since its early days, is now the most widely used GP clinical system in the NHS in England.”

As well as GPs, EMIS Web is also used by a wide range of other healthcare professionals – including community teams across England – to deliver integrated healthcare services. EMIS Group today announced plans to further refine the system to serve the Community Care, Child Health and Mental Health markets.
