London, March 22 2022: Digital health consultancy, Cloud21, has received a major investment from global health technology consultancy, Tegria, to support health and social care organisations meet their local and national digital transformation ambitions.
The investment will see the companies combine Cloud21’s deep and longstanding experience of working with the NHS, with Tegria’s extensive international, end-to-end digital strategy and support services across health and care.
Cloud21 will leverage Tegria’s global team of more than 3,500 clinicians, technologists, scientists and strategists, to support healthcare systems and organisations, as they plan to implement government’s latest digital priorities and targets and improve patient experiences and outcomes through technology.
Together the two organisations, who both focus solely on health and care, have unmatched experience in strategic transformation, enablement and deployment, as well as proven credibility in the implementation and optimisation of every single major EPR system.
The investment comes as the integrated care systems draw up their plans to have smart digital and data foundations in place, to accelerate sustainable transformation in their systems for years to come.
Dr Tony Corkett, CEO of Cloud21, said: “This investment is enabling Cloud21 to provide a unique offering to the health and social care sector, whether it is in helping providers level-up or scale-up their digital abilities at a local, regional, and national level in the UK.
“For technology to deliver benefits and enable staff to provide care effectively, we need to match any technology investment with equal investments in implementation and change management – taking our people on the journey and making the new processes work in the real world. Working with Tegria enhances our capabilities to deliver this at scale, throughout the entire digital journey.”
The companies have already started working together to help health and care organisations accelerate their digital maturity, and discussions with healthcare leaders across the UK are at an advanced stage.
Tegria draws on and shares the lessons learned from working with 500+ health and care organisations across the globe, to help them tackle the three cornerstones of any successful EPR programme; the people, the processes, and the technology. Tegria’s founder, Providence, is a leading not-for profit integrated care organisation, and one of the largest health systems in the US, providing Tegria with unique insights on large scale digital transformation.
Justin Jozwik, Managing Director of Tegria added: “As the NHS moves towards establishing integrated care boards and places and addresses the operational and cultural challenges of digital transformation, our end-to-end experience means we are uniquely placed to share decades of learning around optimising digital and data.
“This, combined with Cloud21’s strong footprint as a trusted partner to the NHS and unmatched understanding of the varying levels of need across the sector, gives us an unprecedented opportunity to make meaningful change at pace and scale.”
Tegria provides consulting and technology services to help organizations of all sizes humanize each healthcare experience. Founded by Providence, with teams throughout the United States and internationally, Tegria is comprised of more than 3,500 colleagues who help their customers integrate technology, transform operations, accelerate revenue and optimize care.
