Kainos Evolve® and Alfresco announce strategic partnership to provide best-in-class content and process management to healthcare providers and partners

Belfast/London/Boston – February 24, 2016 Kainos Group plc (KNOS), a leading UK-based provider of IT, consulting and software solutions, and Alfresco Software, the leading open-source provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Business Process Management (BPM) solutions, today announced a partnership to extend the capability of the Evolve Mobile-Enabled Healthcare platform. Kainos Evolve and Alfresco will showcase their solutions at Stand #10651 at the HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas on February 29 to March 4.

Announced in August 2015, the Evolve Mobile-Enabled Healthcare platform improves patient care through better management of structured and unstructured clinical information and by providing access to appropriate care and patient record data to medical practitioners, care givers and patients. Alfresco’s Enterprise Content Management and Business Process Management solutions will underpin information management, collaboration and care process automation in Evolve. This will allow customers and partners to build and change care pathways on the existing Evolve platform and meet the ever-increasing needs of healthcare delivery.

The Evolve platform is designed to meet the increasingly dynamic requirements of the diverse and fast-changing healthcare market. The need to move care from acute hospital settings to home or to the community, combined with innovations in tele-health means that healthcare providers need a more flexible infrastructure than was previously available.

Brendan Mooney, Chief Executive Officer of Kainos, commented: “We are delighted to announce this strategic partnership with Alfresco, which demonstrates our commitment to bringing the most powerful, flexible and mobile platforms to healthcare providers. Reflecting the views of industry analysts, we believe that Alfresco is leading the revolution in next generation Enterprise Content Management, and is therefore a perfect fit with Evolve.”

Jean van Vuuren, Regional Vice President, Global Healthcare at Alfresco, added: “We are excited about working with Evolve on its Mobile-Enabled Healthcare platform. With the increasing needs of healthcare organisations to provide quick, powerful access to clinical information, this partnership will allow us to make a real difference to patient care. We see our partnership as a great technology fit, and importantly, Kainos and Alfresco have committed to collaborate closely to grow our market share in international healthcare markets”.
