Informatica Systems Limited has been acquired by technology and service company Clanwilliam Group.
The company, which will become part of Clanwilliam’s NHS division, provides predictive analytics technology to GP practices in Wales to help doctors predict when specific patients are at risk of developing chronic diseases.
This has allowed NHS Wales to track major public health issues and clinical issues, such as seasonal vaccinations, across the country.
Doctors can use the Informatica software, installed locally within their surgery, to analyse patient records and flag when a patient is at risk of developing a chronic condition, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, allowing early interventions.
The software is funded centrally through the GP Systems of Choice framework and made available to GPs and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) at no direct cost.
Informatica Systems will be the 16th healthcare technology company to join Clanwilliam Group in the last four years.
The group has spent more than £113.9m adding businesses to its portfolio since 2014 and is continuing to expand.
This included Medisec Software, which was acquired in August 2017.
Philip Brown, managing director at Informatica Systems, said: “Joining Clanwilliam Group means we will be better able to help the NHS, drawing on a much wider pool of expertise to develop our systems, and a wider network of NHS suppliers in the group that will help us to expand the reach of our technology much further across the health service.”
Despite the acquisition, Informatica Systems customers will continue to receive the same level of support.
Howard Beggs, CEO of Clanwilliam Group, said: “Informatica Systems is a long-standing and trusted company providing invaluable services to its NHS customers. With very strong leadership, backable founders, and a robust technical stack, the company fits extremely well into Clanwilliam Group as our first technology provider focussed solely on primary care.”
