RLDatix acquires Quality Compliance Systems (QCS)
RLDatix, global leader in governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) and human capital management (HCM) healthcare solutions, has announced the acquisition of UK-based Quality Compliance Systems (QCS), leading provider of content-driven SaaS compliance software.
RLDatix says the move will enable it to provide end-to-end governance, risk, and compliance solutions to social care and health organisations both in the UK and globally.
Following the pandemic, the government has made it clear that joined-up care is key to patient safety and organisational sustainability. By bringing together leading GRC platforms for all parts of health and care, RLDatix says this acquisition will see it well-placed to respond to the changing needs of the sector, as organisations focus on existing integrated pathways or forge new integrated health and care systems.
Jeff Surges, CEO of RLDatix, said: “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. 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.”
Mat Whittingham, chair and co-founder of QCS, commented: “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.”
The transaction is awaiting final approval.
