Advanced acquires CareWorks to extend health and care capabilities

Tuesday 19th November, 2019

Advanced has acquired CareWorks a provider of Cloud based case management software for health and social care organisations used by over 50,000 care professionals and clinicians, and more than three million citizens.

The acquisition help will boost Advanced’s drive to deliver integrated health and care solutions and support the goals set out in the NHS Long Term Plan to build integrated care systems by 2021.

CareWorks has established relationships with government and public sector organisations in health and social care, which will add to Advanced’s existing work with local authorities and the NHS.

The firm will integrate directly into Advanced’s health and care division led by its managing director, Ric Thompson who joined from Docman after it was acquired by Advanced in July 2018.

CareWorks is the first acquisition announced since Advanced received an investment from Funds advised by BC Partners, with Vista Equity Partners continuing as an investor. The investment, which closed last month supports Advanced’s ambitious growth aspirations.

Michael Dolan, CEO of CareWorks, says: “Being part of the Advanced family will help to spearhead the delivery of a fully integrated end-to-end health and care platform, with CareWorks an integral component.”

“We jointly recognise the transformative benefits that bringing together health and social care will deliver – as leading software providers to that market we are ready to support the integrated plans. We quickly saw the potential that bringing together our solutions into a single system could provide and see it as an incredible opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives.”
