Martin Sweeney and Jessica Fielden have advised healthcare software developer EMIS Group on their acquisition of primary care data and analytics specialist Edenbridge Healthcare in a deal worth up to £10m.
Edenbridge Healthcare is a provider of near real-time insights to primary care.
The company’s APEX software supports more than 1,000 GP practices and organisations such as Primary Care Networks (PCNs) and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).
EMIS Group acquired the business for £4m paid from the group’s existing cash resources, with further cash consideration of up to £6m payable on attaining certain performance targets.
Dr Shaun O’Hanlon, chief medical officer at EMIS Group, said: “This strategic acquisition sits at the heart of the NHS transformation agenda. Planning better, more efficient services and putting in place the right workforce for the future all require access to rich, data-driven insights.
“The acquisition of Edenbridge – already a partner of EMIS – complements our existing analytics proposition through our EMIS Analytics platform and adds a strong specialist capability for PCNs and Integrated Care Systems.
“I am delighted to welcome the company into EMIS Group and to join together two Yorkshire businesses who are doing such important healthcare work.”
Simon Shepherd provided employment law advice, and Sadia Ali advised the team on commercial property matters.
