CSW acquires software assets of H2HCare
CSW Group Ltd, a leading provider of standards-based e-records products for healthcare and knowledge management in the UK, have acquired the software assets of H2HCare, a health IT company, which specialises in the 'business of healthcare'. H2HCare provides web-based billing, contracting and financial management capabilities to support effective patient care for public and private healthcare organisations. Here it deserves a mention that CSW has combined in-depth knowledge of the requirements of clinical users with advanced web and XML technology, in its Case Notes product suite, to deliver a new generation of solutions for shared care, health records management.
As a result of this acquisition, H2HCare products will be incorporated into CSW's Case Notes product suite, extending it from an electronic health record for cross-agency shared care into a complete service management system for scheduling care delivery and meeting the extended contract quality challenges in the new commissioning environment.
The new software will be released this autumn in Case Notes v5.2 as the Case Notes Financials, Patient Administration and Enterprise Booking modules. CSW is in discussion with former customers of H2HCare in Ireland on upgrades to the new Case Notes versions of the product.
Eamonn Furniss, former Chief utive, H2HCare said, “I am delighted to see our software incorporated into CSW's Case Notes. CSW and H2HCare have worked as partners in the past and have very complementary product offerings for private and public healthcare. The combined product offering will be unique in offering a fully integrated enterprise solution for both clinical and administrative users, and will ultimately improve the patient experience.”
