Emis reveals revenues are in good health

HEALTHCARE software provider Emis said it is well placed to provide faster, better and cheaper healthcare through its software as it reported a 30 per cent increase in annual revenue.

The Leeds-based group said trading in 2014 was in line with expectations and it has significant revenue visibility.

The firm said its Emis Web for GPs is now live in 4,261 practices, up from 3,327 practices last year.

The roll-out programme in England is almost complete, and in Wales all the group’s practices are scheduled to have switched to Emis Web by the end of this year.

In Northern Ireland, practices will begin to upgrade to EMIS Web for the first time in the latter part of the year.

Chris Spencer, CEO, said: “We traded in line with our expectations, secured significant primary care frameworks, virtually completed the roll-out to English GPs of Emis Web, won significant CCMH and Secondary Care contracts, consolidated our position in community pharmacy and broadened our offerings by acquisition in specialist care.”

He said the NHS is committed to paperless health records that can be viewed by patients.

“As custodians of well over 40 million such records, we remain uniquely placed to help provide faster, better and cheaper healthcare,” he added.
