HCML has acquired specialist brain injury case management and expert witness provider CA Case Management Limited (CACM).
The corporate health, wellbeing and rehabilitation services provider said the acquisition will allow it to bolster its case management offering across serious and catastrophic injury.
As CACM is registered with the Care Quality Commission, HCML added the deal will mean it 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.
This means 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.
Expanding further on the reasoning behind the acquisition, HCML said it would result in an expansion of its specialist case management team, increasing its national coverage and capacity to deliver for customers 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.
For CACM’s part, the deal will enable it to access to a wider network of specialist case managers for sharing clinical advice, peer-to-peer support and mentorship and unlock opportunities for continued professional development.
It will also allow CACM to improve case management and enable earlier access to rehabilitation through HCML’s funding solutions for serious injury cases.
While terms of the deal were not disclosed, HCML added the CA Management team will remain in place acting as a specialist unit within the wider HCML catastrophic case management operations.
It further pointed out that its business continues to grow strongly across all its divisions and there are no plans for any redundancies in any parts of the group.
Nick Delaney, CEO at HCML, (pictured) said “really excited” to see where the partnership would lead.
“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.
“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.
“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 of 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.”
