FCG Prodacapo Group acquires leading PLICS and Healthcare Analytics solution provider Bellis-Jones Hill
Following on from its acquisition of Prodacapo AB in April 2017 and the creation of the FCG Prodacapo Group, we are delighted to announce that we have also become part of the FCG Prodacapo Group, an FCG Group company. As a result, Bellis-Jones Hill will become Prodacapo UK. This further strengthens the FCG Prodacapo Group’s position as a global market leader in the provision of Value-Based Healthcare and performance management solutions.
In our role as a leading provider of Patient Level Information and Costing Systems (PLICS) and Healthcare Analytics solutions to the NHS, Bellis-Jones Hill has been the exclusive distributor of Prodacapo software in the UK and Ireland for almost 20 years and we have worked very closely with Prodacapo AB throughout that period.
Founding Director and Managing Director Robin Bellis-Jones said:
“We have been working closely with Prodacapo for many years, so this move felt like a natural step for us to take. We believe that being part of a larger organisation will allow us to provide more depth and a wider array of new services to our clients in the future. FCG Prodacapo Group shares our values and by becoming part of the Group we can also continue to provide the excellent service and deep expertise that underpins our business.
I had been intending to retire from full time involvement with the business this year so this is a good time to pass over responsibility for running the business to Phil and Seb. Between them they’ve been with Prodacapo UK for over 20 years and know our business inside out so I can start the move towards retirement in the knowledge that our customers will continue to be well looked after”.
What does this mean for our clients?
- Our team is key to our business and we hope you will be reassured to know that all of the team are staying with the business so you can continue to work with the same talented individuals
- We will continue to provide all the products and services that you are familiar with and, in the not too distant future, we will also be able to introduce you to new solutions and share best practice from other countries
- As part of the move Phil Garland becomes Chief Executive Officer and Sebastian Kerr becomes Chief Operating Officer. We take over responsibility for the day to day running of the business with immediate effect
Kari Lappalainen, CEO at FCG Prodacapo Group adds: “We are very pleased to welcome our new colleagues into the Group. By combining our competencies and knowledge, our customers can benefit from the latest technology and the most advanced analytical solutions and services for Value-Based Healthcare and performance management. Our activities across several European countries also means we can open up exceptional opportunities for our customers to benefit from increased knowledge transfer and sharing of best practice”.
If you have any questions about this exciting news and what else it will mean for you, please contact any of us at any time.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Kind regards and best wishes for 2018
