Alcidion acquire UK Patient Administration Provider, Silverlink Software

We are pleased to announce our acquisition of Silverlink PCS Software Limited (Silverlink Software).

Silverlink Software was founded in 1994 and is the leading UK specialist Patient Administration System (PAS) provider, servicing the UK National Health Service (NHS) market with their flagship product Patient Care System (PCS). A PAS captures all non-clinical information used in the daily management of a hospital holding the key data for administration and reporting of hospital activity.

This acquisition will provide Alcidion with PAS capabilities to complement the existing clinical capacity in Miya Precision. The combination of the two products alongside their network of partners provides Alcidion the opportunity to deliver a cloud-native, modern and modular Electronic Patient Record (EPR) / Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system to the NHS.

The investment includes 11 new trusts, expanding Alcidion’s UK customer base to 38 Trusts across the acute NHS market.  It is estimated that approximately 60+ UK Trusts will need to upgrade their existing PAS software over the next five years.

Kate Quirke, Alcidion Group Managing Director said: “This acquisition is very exciting and aligns with our overall intention to enhance the services we can offer the NHS. We welcome the Silverlink team who together with our own senior leadership team have decades of product development and implementation experience in PAS. These skills and experience make this partnership a perfect fit.”

Lynette Ousby, UK Managing Director added: “We are excited to bring on board the experience and technology of the Silverlink team, which complements the work we have been doing at Alcidion with our Miya Precision platform. We believe that together we have a modern and compelling solution that delivers something different to the NHS. Our approach of separating data and application layers allows us to deliver an open, modular and flexible EPR ecosystem that can be easily configured to the specific needs of each trust. This further signals our intent to bring a compelling alternative to how trusts and ICS’ accelerate their digital maturity.”
