6PM plc a leader in health IT solutions has acquired its remaining shareholding in the electronic and mobile care provider, emCare360 Limited from CareMalta Group Limited. By virtue of this deed emCare360 has become a fully owned subsidiary of 6PM Holdings.
Speaking about this acquisition 6PM CEO Ivan Bartolo said that “This acquisition was the next logical step in 6PM’s strategic growth plan. emCare is a healthcare technology company and it made sense for 6PM to acquire the remaining 50% shares previously owned by CareMalta.”
Mr Bartolo added that, “Following this acquisition, emCare will continue to offer its services in Malta to both the consumer and business sectors which are mainly Telecare users and CareMalta. Furthermore, 6PM will now have a third product line as emCare products will be marketed in the UK under the 6PM brand name. Through the full ownership of this company, 6PM will continue to enhance its strategy to focus on health solutions as part of its drive to revolutionize the health market in the 21st Century.”
emCare360 provides electronic and mobile care to individuals offering independence and peace of mind and to organisations offering accountability, efficiency and visibility through its solutions. All services and products are integrated with a central repository that enables emCare360 to manage an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) for and on behalf of its customers. emCare360 has been responsible for the Telecare Service in Malta in collaboration with GO plc since April 2013, servicing just under 10,000 households. emCare360 was also instrumental in the launching of the Telecareplus service which introduced the possibility of connecting a number of sensors to the service. Complementing the Telecare service, emCare360 has also introduced a Vital Signs Monitoring service and this is being implemented and adopted by care providers in Malta, Italy and the UK. emCare360 has also launched a mobile service which is the natural evolution of the traditional telecare service. With its portfolio emCare does not replace the human care element but complements it with technology.
