Accenture has acquired Nautilus Consulting, a digital healthcare consultancy in the UK that specializes in Electronic Patient Record (EPR) solutions.

This move is aimed at enhancing Accenture’s digital transformation, implementation and optimization capabilities across the UK and within the global healthcare space.

Nautilus joins Accenture’s Health Strategy and Consulting team which focuses on providing expertise in strategic and operational consulting services and assists clients in implementing and optimizing their digital solutions.

Headquartered in London, the team is made up of experienced staff with technical, managerial and commercial backgrounds from the NHS and private sector. It works by bridging the gap between clinical users and IT solution suppliers to improve the patient experience and health outcomes while driving cost and operational efficiencies.

With experience in the procurement and implementation of Oracle Health’s Millennium platform, a provider of digital record systems in the healthcare space, Nautilus allows Accenture to build on its strategic relationship with Oracle Health, further enhancing its ability to deliver a unique end-to-end digital transformation experience at scale.

Ashish Goel, senior managing director of Accenture’s EMEA health industry practice, said: “With a proven track record in delivering EPR transformation projects, Nautilus has the right talent, digital capabilities and strategic insights to further harness the data and technology needed to improve the access, experience and outcome of healthcare services.

“Together, our combined expertise will enable healthcare providers to accelerate their digital transformation, drive better outcomes for all – and help us on our journey to becoming a leading healthcare transformation partner of choice.”

Simon Evans, managing director at Nautilus, said: “For over a decade, Nautilus has been dedicated to supporting healthcare providers to achieve maximum value from their digital investments.  With increasing costs, resourcing challenges and greater demand than ever, now is the right time for us to unleash our potential with Accenture and make an even bigger difference to the healthcare ecosystem.”
