HCML, the leading provider of corporate health, wellbeing and rehabilitation services, announces that it has acquired CA Case Management Limited (CACM), the specialist brain injury case management and expert witness providers. The acquisition will allow HCML to bolster its case management offering across serious and catastrophic injury, building on the clinical and medical expertise and experience of the existing team along with the specialists at CACM.
Being CQC registered, the collaboration between HCML and CACM means that the company will be able to offer the recruitment, on-boarding, and training of care staff as part of the wider management of comprehensive care packages for clients. HCML will no longer be reliant on other providers and instead will be able to build the most appropriate care team for its clients to ensure they receive help and support tailored to their specific needs.
The addition of the clinical expertise at CACM sees HCML expanding its specialist case management team, increasing its national coverage and capacity to achieve outstanding outcomes in complex cases. The acquisition also includes the addition of expert witness services, providing independent assessment and reports on both care and case management for the courts. This, combined with bespoke care provision, offers HCML customers and clients a seamless case management experience.
For CACM, the acquisition will enable access to a wider network of specialist case managers for sharing clinical advice, peer-to-peer support and mentorship, as well as plenty of opportunities for continued professional development. Joining together with HCML allows CACM to utilise its bespoke systems and digital pathways for improved efficiencies within case management. The deal also sees clients and their representatives benefitting from earlier access to rehabilitation through HCML’s funding solutions for serious injury cases.
Nick Delaney, CEO, HCML, said: “The healthcare industry is evolving all the time and we must move with it to ensure HCML sits firmly at the top of this, taking advantage of the opportunities available to further enhance the services we deliver to our clients and customers. Having exceptional people leading bespoke rehabilitation solutions and access to the very best in specialised care allows us to do this and by joining together with the excellent team at CACM we can progress this even further.
“Providing exceptional care for our clients remains our paramount priority. HCML and CACM share the same values and ethos in that we do everything we can to provide the very best rehabilitation programmes and recovery outcomes for our clients, with no restrictions. I’m really excited to see where this partnership takes us as we embed our teams and expertise together.
As in our acquisition of Healthcare RM last summer, the continuing support and enthusiasm of our investors, Apposite Capital LLP, has been an important element in our ability to identify and execute partnership opportunities that materially enhance the value of the services we provide.”
Carolyn Archibold, Founder and CEO, CACM said: “This acquisition is an exciting opportunity that will allow us to uphold our mission of providing exceptional, bespoke care and support to clients and their families following life changing neurological injuries. Ensuring that our clients’ needs are met has always been our priority and the support that HCML will bring will allow us to further enhance our clients’ quality of life and aid them in their recovery journey. We look forward to joining forces, to continue to find new and innovative ways of doing things in the industry and drive great outcomes for everyone involved.
