We strive to empower healthcare organisations to transform the way they capture, interpret and analyse data, to improve patient flow and better co-ordinate patient care services across any geographical footprint.

Why we exist

As leading experts in our field, we aim to provide meaningful, useful products and services that meet the needs of our healthcare clients, in a way that is easy to interpret and understand for any level of user.

We strongly believe in the power of embracing, driving and implementing digital change and we pride ourselves on our ability to develop new and innovative technologies.

Delivering digital transformation at scale, our product portfolio facilitates secure, real-time data collection, analysis and forecasting and includes tools to effectively manage patient flow, demand and capacity, discharge optimisation, whole-system visibility, patient activity and operational processes, all at a price that is accessible.

Our values


We develop industry solutions in an open and transparent way that is consistent and therefore more useful for users. We hope to inspire trust, and we work in a way that reflects our moral and social values.


We believe in the power of implementing digital change by empowering others. We pride ourselves on our ability to pioneer new and innovative technologies to solve the ever changing challenges faced in health.


We strive to build expert solutions to meet our clients’ needs and, fundamentally, to improve patient flow and therefore clinical outcomes. In doing so we ‘buy time’ for staff to focus on making a difference.

Our Story

We were founded during the H1N1 influenza pandemic of 2009 to help the NHS solve the lack of access to real time information across its multitude of services. Our first six years were spent in research and development, building a clear vision of what great data sets look like across NHS teams, and establishing our product portfolio: SHREWD.

SHREWD aims to solve the challenge of capturing and transforming high quality data on fluctuating scales, from varying sources. Once captured, we empower NHS teams to determine actionable insights from a wide range of healthcare data.

Since 2015, we’ve worked with partners across the country to deliver award-winning solutions via SHREWD. We see ourselves as partners with the systems in which we work. Listening to our clients’ problems and understanding their organisation’s needs leads to the creation of expert solutions and innovative products, designed to empower their teams.
