RLDatix Acquires Quality Compliance Systems (QCS), further deepening its reach into wider care markets, including primary care, at a key time as organisations move towards greater integration across care settings.
QCS’s content driven digital SaaS platform serves over 4000 social and primary care providers, helping them manage their unique regulatory compliance and quality assurance obligations.
London, UK, May 5th 2022 – RLDatix, the global leader in governance, risk and compliance (GRC) and Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions for healthcare, announced today the acquisition of UK-based Quality Compliance Systems (QCS) the leading provider of content driven SaaS compliance software for the primary care and care sectors. Together, the organisations will provide end-to-end governance, risk and compliance solutions relevant to organisations both in the UK and globally who seek to operate across the health and care continuum.
Through the pandemic, health and care organisations globally learnt how important system wide joined up care was to quality, patient safety and organisational sustainability. These learnings are now being implemented with organisations redoubling existing integrated efforts and pathways, or forging new integrated health and care systems, especially as regulators are increasingly looking for assurance across systems. By bringing together leading GRC platforms for all parts of health and care, RLDatix is best placed to respond to the needs of the sector and to continue deepening its reach and expertise in supporting customers on their journeys to safer care.
“Our mission is to help organisations deliver safer care. Safer for patients and service users, safer for the workforce and safer for organisations as a whole” said Jeff Surges, CEO, RLDatix. “The vision for safer care cannot be done in isolation. We believe that we are safer together, and that is why I am thrilled that through this acquisition, RLDatix is bringing two great technologies and customer communities together who are ready to support a more joined up future across all parts of the health and care sector.”
“The value fit with RLDatix was immediately clear. RLDatix has an inspiring vision for the future and its resources and strategic expertise, coupled with QCS’s innovative product and presence in the social care and primary care sector, will form an exciting combination. Together, we will be able to even better support care providers in delivering outstanding care.” said Mat Whittingham, Chair and Cofounder, QCS.
The transaction is pending final approvals which will be completed in the coming weeks.
