Technology company rolls out risk management and compliance software across all Circle Health Group's 54 hospitals
Radar Healthcare will supply Circle Health Group with its risk management and compliance software across its 54 hospitals as the company aims to unlock vital safety data to improve patient outcomes.
Founded in 2004, Circle Health Group offers the UK’s-largest national network of private hospitals, in addition to innovative neurological and musculoskeletal rehabilitation services and pathway management services.
And each year its 8,200 members of staff support two million patient visits.
The partnership with Radar Healthcare will see the private hospital group move away from multiple risk management and compliance systems to one integrated and efficient platform.
Simon Geoghegan, head of clinical data reporting and governance systems for Circle Health Group, said: “Our partnership offers us an opportunity to enhance our offering to patients across the UK.
“The platform is renowned for its depth of insight and ease of use and we want to equip our staff with the very-best technology to allow them to do what they do best – care for patients.
“By bringing a number of systems together under one roof, Circle Health Group will be able to improve our efficiencies and processes.
Like many healthcare organisations that have experienced rapid growth and expansion through acquisition, Circle Health Group needed to move away from processes dictated by multiple legacy systems
“And, from a data perspective, having access to an effective tool that can quickly report, identify, and link together anything across the wider spectrum that governance covers, is vital to any organisation looking to futureproof their process management.
“Working with Radar Healthcare to deliver this will help enhance the supportive, patient-focused culture we are proud of.”
Integration of the Radar Healthcare platform across Circle Health Group will begin this month and enable the group to evolve its processes and comply with the Learn from Patient Safety Events (LFPSE) service.
Geoghegan said: “By having a more-joined-up approach we will be able to identify issues faster.
“The learnings we will be able to gain from the platform will help provide assurance to not only regulators and staff, but more importantly our patients.
“It demonstrates that we are a learning organisation with patient care at the heart of what we do.”

Paul Johnson, chief executive of Radar Healthcare, added: “We are proud to have been chosen as Circle Health Group’s risk, quality, and compliance partner.
“Like many healthcare organisations that have experienced rapid growth and expansion through acquisition, Circle Health Group needed to move away from processes dictated by multiple legacy systems.
“Instead, it needed one platform that could integrate seamlessly, fulfil all its demands, and provide vital insights to ensure the highest standards of care and safety for both staff and patients.”
