Helix Health acquires pharmaSys

Helix Health has acquired the UK and Irish businesses of pharmaSys.

Helix Health has announced the acquisition of the UK and Irish businesses of pharmaSys.

The move will allow the firm to offer a larger range of services, including the pharmaSys web-based pharmacy management system.

It announced the merger ahead of the Pharmacy Show, which took place today at the NEC in Birmingham, and where both companies were exhibiting.

Helix Health said that the acquisition would allow it to improve the software and services it offers to community pharmacies. Its systems are developed in consultation with UK pharmacists and industry bodies.

"Howard Beggs, chief executive of Helix Health, said: "We are delighted to have secured the acquisition of pharmaSys UK and Ireland and believe the product will be highly complementary to our existing product portfolio in the UK.

"I strongly believe that Helix Health's dual product offering sets us ahead of other providers – our fresh approach to the market presents community pharmacists in England and Wales with a genuine alternative to existing systems providers."
