Patient flow company, Intouch with Health, has acquired pre-operative software development company, Synopsis Healthcare, for an undisclosed sum.
Intouch said the addition of pre-operative assessment software to its expanding digital health technology portfolio will enable the company to offer hospitals an end-to-end solution that dovetails surgical pathway information directly with its digital outpatient flow management software.
Mike Sanders, chief executive officer at Intouch with Health, said: “The acquisition of Synopsis Healthcare is a highly complementary addition to the Intouch with Health product portfolio and is part of our ongoing strategic investment in driving growth through the development and introduction of end-to-end digital patient flow management solutions for hospitals both in the UK and worldwide.
“Synopsis allows hospitals to cover the entire pre-operative assessment – from initial questionnaire through to post-operative outcomes digitally, removing paper trail, increasing data security and delivering significant organisational benefits.
“These benefits dovetail seamlessly into Intouch’s outpatient flow management solutions that support hospitals with phased management of the outpatient journey to improve the patient experience, accurately capture data and deliver efficiency and financial gains through digital transformation.”
In the last three years Intouch has secured contracts with six new NHS Trusts, taking the total number of hospitals using its solutions to over 110 across 60 NHS Trusts.
