Joined-up healthcare depends on joined-up information systems. But health professionals often hold many different, unconnected records of the same patient. This is where the London firm Newchurch comes in. It worked with South Warwickshire Primary Care Trust in 2003 to form a single electronic record for each patient. Founded by Kingsley Manning in 1986, and backed by HG Capital, which has invested £20m since 2000, the company says it has worked with more than 300 NHS organisations to increase sales 104% a year from £1.4m in 2002 to £5.6m in 2004, when Newchurch made a substantial loss.
