Over 7 million patients are currently waiting for a hospital appointment across all specialities, with a backlog of unaddressed referrals by already overloaded staff. The long waiting lists for specialist services adds to the strain felt by A&E (Accident and Emergency) departments, as patients self-refer to emergency departments for non-emergency care. 

Birmingham-based Capri Healthcare addresses the pressing issue and proves its success through existing implementations, making the company a strong investment candidate. 

£320K funding to expand its service

In a recent development, the Birmingham company has secured £320K from the Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF) through the MEIF West Midlands Equity Fund managed by Midven (which manages UKI2S and invested in iethico), part of the Future Planet Capital Group. The investment will enable Capri Healthcare to expand its service to more hospitals and to build more specialty pathways.

Valleesh Athreya, Co-Founder and Director at Capri Healthcare Limited, said, “The investment will enable us to realise the NHS digital first strategy through innovation and transformation in both public and private healthcare. ensuring timely and patient-centred care for all. Our specialty-agnostic approach, configurable pathways, and seamless integration capabilities will empower clinicians. Enabling them to tackle the backlog of referrals, enhance overall efficiency, and improve access to specialist services.”

Huw Sparkes, Junior Investment Manager at Midven, said, “Capri Healthcare’s impressive software is poised to revolutionise the healthcare landscape by addressing the critical issue of NHS waiting lists. Their innovative technology has the potential to significantly reduce waiting times and improve patient access to care. By supporting Capri Healthcare, we aim to make a tangible impact on the lives of patients while advancing the future of healthcare.” 

Mark Wilcockson, Senior Investment Manager at the British Business Bank, said, “The MEIF supports innovative SMEs in the midlands, it’s great to see industry-leading tech solutions receiving investment through the fund. Capri Healthcare is an excellent example of how MEIF funding can support the expansion of successful businesses looking to grow client bases and reach.”
