CCube Solutions expands healthcare portfolio with acquisition of Thomson Screening Solutions

Electronic document management system (EDMS) provider CCube Solutions has acquired Thomson Screening Solutions, supplier of child health clinical applications, used by over 40 NHS, healthcare and education providers.

The tools are designed to support the efficient delivery of vision and hearing screening, along with supporting health needs, electronic consent, mass immunisation management, and risk assessments.

It is hoped that the acquisition will enhance CCube’s portfolio in the healthcare space, with CEO Alistair Eaton commenting that it “aligns perfectly with our mission to provide innovative Software-as-a-Service solutions that enhance the quality of care and operational efficiency for healthcare providers.”

Alistair added: “The acquisition will bring significant benefits to both companies’ stakeholders, including enhanced research and development capabilities, expanded market reach, and a stronger overall service capability. The combined expertise of both companies will drive further innovation and growth in the healthcare technology sector.”

Originally founded in 2013 by City University of London with the aim of developing the research of Professor David Thomson, applications from Thomson Screening Solutions are now reportedly utilised across over 40 NHS, healthcare and education providers. Chairman Tim Cooke has called it a “superb  example of a university spin out” which has “helped deliver improved educational attainment for many thousands of children together with much more efficient NHS operations.”

Also from Thomson Screening, CEO Michael Ter-Berg commented: “I look forward to the next stage of our journey with CCube. The combined resources of both companies will further enhance Thomson Screening’s capabilities as our clients look to digital solutions to deliver enhanced child health and education outcomes.”

In other news from CCube Solutions, in April we reported how Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is moving its electronic document and records management system to CCube’s cloud-based EDMS platform, CCube Cloud, with Alistair Eaton commenting: “The scalability and performance of the cloud-native technology used by the CCube Cloud platform maximises the user experience whilst delivering extremely high levels of reliability and security.”

Alistair also joined us for a panel discussion in May alongside University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust’s CIO Andy Carruthers on the considerations, approaches and learning for healthcare cloud strategies, with the pair discussing recommended strategies for an organisation in moving to the cloud, what good looks like in this space, challenges, solutions, and more.
