ClearCourse Partnership, a group of innovative technology companies of which e-clinic is part, today announced a deal to acquire the assets of PPM Software. The acquisition is ClearCourse’s first of the year and strengthens the group’s healthcare and CRM capabilities.

Founded in 1998, PPM has built a reputation as one of the UK’s leading software providers for medical practitioners operating in the private healthcare sector. Its solution provides a single platform from which users can manage their practices, automating tasks and workflows such as patient bookings, automated reminders via text or email, and the production of clinic and theatre lists, allowing consultants to focus on delivering better patient care. PPM has been developed in collaboration with practice managers and consultants to ensure it adds significant value to its customers and is continually improved to meet their evolving demands. Its clients include renowned healthcare providers including Nuffield Health, Spire Healthcare and BMI Healthcare.Based in Derbyshire, the PPM team comprises technical, developmental, sales and customer skills to meet the wide- ranging needs of the Company’s customers. PPM’s assets are highly complementary to fellow ClearCourse group company e-clinic’s management solutions and the acquisition will allow both to benefit from sharing technology best practice.

Gerry Gualtieri, CEO of ClearCourse, commented: “We are delighted to bring PPM Software into the ClearCourse group of companies. The addition of its platform is an important step in the expansion of our healthcare offering and brings a new set of expertise and products to bolster our CRM capabilities in the sector. We see great potential for growth in PPM and we’re very much looking forward to having them on board.”

Tom Hunt, MD of PPM Software, commented: “This is an exciting step for PPM. ClearCourse has an impressive reputation with a proven record of enabling growth. We see great opportunities to deliver our product to a broad range of new customers as part of the Group, and it will allow us to capitalise on synergies with other complementary businesses. I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us as part of the Group.”
