What we do

EMIS Group is a major provider of healthcare software, information technology and related services in the UK.

The NHS needs high performing, reliable technology that speeds up processes. Technology provides efficiency for a stretched NHS, under pressure for resources to cope with increasing medical costs and demand on services. Healthcare technology will underpin the sustainability of the NHS for the future.

That’s why tens of thousands of clinicians across the UK rely on EMIS Group software and systems on a daily basis, to help them deliver the best possible patient care.

EMIS Group serves the following healthcare settings

Primary care

EMIS Group provides the technology to connect different primary care services, as well as joining them up with wider healthcare services. It means GPs and specialist settings such as diabetes clinics can instantly access a complete picture of the patient’s care. This is integrated care, and it improves efficiency, patient safety and clinical outcomes.

Community

EMIS Group enables healthcare professionals working in a community setting to access and contribute to the patient’s GP record. In turn, primary care professionals can see the details recorded by their colleagues working in wider healthcare environments – instantly and in real time. This means a better experience for the patient because their care is joined up.

Acute care

EMIS Group software is used by NHS trusts in a wide range of secondary care settings.

Our systems are mainly used to manage hospital pharmacy and prescribing, emergency care and electronic patient records (including patient administration systems).

Community pharmacy

ProScript is the single most widely used system in the community pharmacy software market. It efficiently manages the dispensing process and handles standard tasks such as labelling and endorsing, patient records, ordering and stock control. It is used by independent community pharmacies, pharmacy group chains and supermarket pharmacies.

Pharmacy Access enables pharmacies to view a summarised patient record and order repeat prescriptions direct from the GP. It provides an introduction to the provision of clinical services by pharmacies, such as flu vaccinations and smoking cessation.

Specialist care

EMIS Group provides IT systems for specialist care settings, offering expert and invaluable solutions to niche markets with specific requirements, such as image management and storage for the ophthalmology market. The Group also provides diabetic retinopathy screening services for patients.

Patient self-care

Patient.info is the Group’s website that helps patients play a key part in their own healthcare through high quality information. It also supports professionals in clinical decision making and by providing high quality, accurate and up to date reference material.

Across the markets 

Egton provides non-clinical ICT solutions such as bespoke websites for healthcare professionals and other public and private sector organisations. It also supplies ICT infrastructure and hosting services.
