Cloud services firm takes over UK telehealth supplier

24-May-2012

InTechnology continues to grow with acquisition of UTH and Healthsolve

Cloud services provider, InTechnology, has today announced the acquisition of one of the UK’s leading telehealth companies, United Telehealth (UTH).

The move comes as the company also takes on a substantial stake in Healthsolve, a leader in the development of healthcare software.

The investments build on the company’s existing role as one of the country’s few network providers to have accredited access to N3, the NHS network linking hospitals, medical centres and GP surgeries.

Bryn Sage, chief operating officer at InTechnology, said: “The Government has put out a challenge to technology leaders to help deliver an affordable and effective telehealth proposition. Our investments will enable us to add a patient-led managed telehealth service to our existing suite of managed data and telephony services while providing budget holders in the clinical community with a viable, cost-effective and independent solution.”

The acquisition of UTH includes the recruitment of the company’s key scientific, technical and clinical staff, while the investment in Healthsolve will allow specific healthcare applications to be developed to provide an end-to-end service from patient to medical expert.

Alan Payne, chief executive of Healthsolve, said: “We are delighted to be engaged in this innovative managed service from InTechnology. Our expertise in the healthcare sector will complement InTechnology’s own longstanding experience and enables us to add real value by delivering the patient record system that underpins this service.”
