Elemental Software, the fast-growing provider of social prescribing technology has announced that it is to become part of Servelec, the leading supplier of digital care software across health, social care, education and youth services in the UK.
Derry firm will continue to operate from current base under own brand and leadership team
The acquisition of the Derry-headquartered company by Servelec (now part of The Access Group) will see Elemental continue to operate from its current base under its own well-established brand and leadership team as part of a larger business focused on connecting communities through digital care.
Established by former community development workers, Jennifer Neff and Leeann Monk-Ozgul, Elemental provides technology that connects people with the right support and services in their community to help address social issues they are facing and improve their wellbeing.
GPs, Multi-Disciplinary Teams (MDTs), housing associations, social prescribing link workers, education, and community and voluntary sector organisations can use it to establish, scale and measure the effectiveness of social prescribing and population health management.
The company has seen demand for its solutions grow significantly in recent years and being part of Servelec provides the potential for the adoption of its social prescribing technology to be accelerated.
Jennifer Neff, CEO of Elemental, says: “This is really good news for social prescribing. Leeann and I founded Elemental with the goal of growing the adoption of social prescribing and helping embed it in health and social care as a way to halt avoidable health inequalities. Servelec shares a similar commitment to improving lives with technology and is strongly committed to accelerating Elemental’s growth to drive the successful adoption and implementation of social prescribing.
“Leeann and I are really excited about the opportunity that being part of Servelec and the wider Access Group provides for us to achieve much more than we could on our own. Working with our team at Elemental and our new colleagues at Servelec and Access, we can’t wait to get going with maximising the potential that the coming together of these two fast growing businesses provides.”
Leeann Monk-Ozgul, co-founder of Elemental, says: “Bringing together our systems with Servelec’s will help us in our mission to achieve the best possible health outcomes for even more people. Interoperability in health and social care is extremely important to help ensure no one is left behind and to maximise the power of technology to support communities. We really look forward to integrating our systems with Servelec’s and being able to offer social prescribing through Servelec’s Rio and Mosaic products as a result.”
Leeann and I would like to thank Brian and the team at ECHAlliance for all their support, guidance and direction over the years. We started with an idea to halt avoidable health inequalities through social prescribing and created a movement where technology could play a part in connecting people, building communities and improving lives.
ECHAlliance gave us a platform to talk about how we were developing Elemental and the different community health models that our technology was supporting. This built our credibility and reputation, enabled us to share best practice with peers, network with others in health and social care tech and ultimately drive the social prescribing agenda forward as a solution to the disconnect between health, housing, social care and the community.
As ECHAlliance members we have grown from a start up to a scale up to now having been acquired by Servelec. Servelec provides leading software to the care sector that makes a positive difference to thousands of lives every day. A trusted supplier to more than 45 NHS trusts and over 150 local authorities, its mission is to connect communities through joined up digital care for social care, healthcare, education and youth services.
We look forward to the future with our friends, colleagues and contacts within the ever growing ECHAlliance.
