Docman MD to spearhead health & care division as MD for Advanced

Software and services provider Advanced has acquired Docman, the electronic document management, workflow and information sharing platform provider to primary and secondary care services.

The acquisition further accelerates Advanced’s Cloud-first strategy and supports its ambitions to help the NHS in transforming health and care through technology in line with the ‘NHS 5 Year Forward View’ and ‘NHS Digital Policy’.

The organisation will integrate directly into the Advanced’s Health & Care Business Unit and will be headed up by Ric Thompson, the current MD of Docman.

It is widely reported that the NHS faces unprecedented pressures on services combined with stringent targets for the delivery of such care creating a major driving force to source and implement technology marking a new digital era for the NHS. The Government plans to digitise NHS services and make them paperless by 2020, as part of its NHS 5 Year Forward View, and Advanced feels strongly that its technology can reshape the healthcare system to positively impact the way care is delivered to people living in Britain.

“The NHS is undergoing a digital transformation that will impact us all and is constantly looking for new ways to innovate,” commented Gordon Wilson, CEO of Advanced.

“Adding Docman’s acclaimed Cloud software to our own strong portfolio of healthcare solutions means we have a more comprehensive offering to support the NHS in achieving its goals. We have automation to drive efficiencies, the Cloud to deliver connected patient services, and augmented intelligence innovations and virtual health assistant apps to encourage self-assessment and self-care significantly alleviating some pressures on the system. At such a transformative time, this acquisition quickly boosts our position and today’s news is therefore incredibly exciting for us and both Docman and Advanced’s existing customers.”

Docman is a complementary acquisition of a market-leading healthcare business which creates a significantly enhanced presence for Advanced in NHS care providers.
