Software firm Craneware appoints US healthcare market experts to senior roles

Tech firm Craneware, which provides billing and healthcare analytics software to US hospitals, has announced key senior appointments alongside a confident outlook in terms of navigating wider macroeconomic challenges.

The Aim-quoted business, which has UK and US headquarters in Edinburgh and Atlanta respectively, said it has continued to deliver a solid performance in the first four months of the new financial year, despite challenges remaining across healthcare Stateside, as the market continues its “slow” recovery post pandemic. It added that it has seen positive levels of cross-sales and competitive wins, benefiting from the increased firepower resulting from its “transformational” $400 million (337m) acquisition of Sentry Data Systems, and continuing to withstand the impact of inflationary pressures on its cost base.

Furthermore, it stated that the transition of customers to the cloud version of key product Trisus Chargemaster has been ongoing, with migration on track to complete by the end of 2022, while all Craneware customers are now using one or more of the group’s cloud offerings.
