It's often the little things that make the biggest difference, so when our 6 newest development apprentices arrived for their first day, they were given a welcome pack of helpful kit, including a wireless charger, laptop stickers, a water bottle and more!
In February, a group from our Development teams in Leeds and Bolton travelled to Manchester to talk about Apprentices. Since then we have confirmed our partnership with Code Nation - Creating Employable Talent and are supporting employees as they start a career in the world of technology.
Check out our video to hear about what we're doing and stay tuned over the next few weeks as we will continue to share more information and detail on our Software Developer Apprenticeship Programme with you!
New Year… New Tech… New Platforms…
This week it all started: Our teams across the UK have begun the work to migrate our systems to the new, cloud-based platform that seamlessly links different healthcare teams and systems,which will be known as EMIS-X.
Our Leeds office celebrated this milestone with some cake before all the hard work began!
Andy Thorburn, our CEO, has said “We believe EMIS-X will help to hugely improve efficiency and patient safety, while providing dramatic cost savings to the NHS”.
Exciting times ahead...
Teams across EMIS Group have been celebrating in the run up to Christmas and to end a fantastic year of achievements!
One of the achievements we're especially proud of is raising £70,000 for our charity partner Mind. We've climbed the height of Everest, walked the Yorkshire Three Peaks, dressed up, baked cakes, helped in Mind charity shops and more. And, to top it all off, our Group Executive Team have donated an extra £10,000 to the pot meaning we've now raised a total of £80,000!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
“From the start, EMIS Group has led the way in interoperability and we have been working closely with clinicians and other customers during 2018 to develop EMIS-X. We believe it is the blueprint for the future of connected healthcare in the UK. EMIS-X is massively scalable and provides unprecedented levels of protection for patient data, including strong encryption of sensitive data.”

Last week we presented our updated strategy to both our current and potential future investors at the Stock Exchange in London.
There was a lot of brilliant information shared and we're all very excited for our companies continued growth!
You never know who may walk into the office at EMIS Group...
Last month we welcomed a VIP: The new Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock, visited to find out more about us and what we do.
“Everyone who works in the company is immensely proud of the part we play in helping the NHS to work more efficiently and improve patient care. That passion and enthusiasm for our work was evident throughout the visit; there was a real buzz in the building.”
Peter Southby (our CFO) and Shaun O'Hanlon (our Chief Medical Officer) showed him around and he was impressed with what he saw! He was joined on the visit by Hadley Beeman, Chief Technology Advisor to the Health Secretary, and our local MP, Stuart Andrew.
EMIS Group is growing!
Today we welcome Dovetail Lab - a young, dynamic blockchain company which creates software that gives patients full control of their healthcare records, delivering secure exchange of data between different health services and new digital technologies involved in patient care.
"This is a very exciting acquisition for the Group, with Dovetail Lab widely regarded as one of the leading healthcare blockchain businesses in the UK, that is driving innovation across the sector."

Have a look at our vacancies to see what opportunity there is to be part of this growing business.
"Ask Andy" is a chance for everyone in the company, across the UK and India, to put their questions to Andy Thorburn, our CEO, and hear his answers live on camera.
There's no hiding from whatever we want to ask! Most recently we heard about business plans, recruitment, offices, the leadership team and more.
We're very excited to announce that EMIS Group is the winner of the prestigious Best Investor Communication Award as part of The AIM Awards 2018!
The judges commented on the Group’s honest, accurate and consistent communication with all levels of investors, including both current and potential new shareholders.
20 years ago in 1998 Microsoft becomes the biggest company in the world; Saving Private Ryan and Armageddon were at the cinema and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets came out...
It was also the year that we welcomed 22 people to the business who are still with us today!
Twenty years service is an amazing achievement and we can’t thank our long serving colleagues enough.
To recognise the milestone, everyone celebrating their 20 years with the group in 2018 was invited to a celebratory dinner hosted by Andy Thorburn (CEO), and the rest of the Executive team to receive their award.
