Cloud21, a provider of consultancy and managed IT services to the health and care sector in the UK and Ireland, today announced the expansion of its specialised implementation and optimisation services for Epic customers to German-speaking countries. As a trusted partner for health and care organisations, Cloud21 specialises in delivering successful digital transformation programmes.

Expanding its presence in Europe enables Cloud21 to deliver its unmatched expertise and comprehensive portfolio of digitally-focused services to health and care organisations across Switzerland, Germany and Austria. The firm’s initial focus will be to provide consulting services to help organisations implement and optimise their instances of Epic at scale to support digital transformation efforts that enable clinicians to provide the best care possible.

“Driving large-scale digital transformation is a complex process for any health organisation, and it’s important to have the right people on your team who have been there before,” said Dr. Tony Corkett, CEO, Cloud21. “Our vast experience with Epic ranges from focused deployments in critical city trusts to larger regional deployments, like our work with Health and Social Care Northern Ireland’s encompass programme.”

Corkett added, “We leverage our experience and knowledge to partner with health organisations seeking to implement and scale their programmes to transform their organisations while delivering high-quality care and improving efficiencies. Now we can share our lessons learned and expertise with clients in German-speaking countries.”

Tegria, Cloud 21’s majority owner, is a global healthcare consulting and technology services firm whose extensive healthcare experience comes from delivering transformation at scale for more than 500 organisations across the USA and Canada, including nearly 300 Epic clients. The x-tention group, a known and trusted consulting services partner in German-speaking countries, is also an investor in Cloud21.
