Ambulatory EHR vendor eClinicalWorks is expanding its global footprint to the UK market with the opening of an office in London and a new deal with Specsavers, an eye-care service provider that does business in 10 countries.

According to a statement from eClinicalWorks, the deal with Specsavers is the company’s first UK-based customer and the eye care provider will use eClinicalWorks’ international private cloud to streamline its operations from vision and hearing test to spectacle and contact lens data as well as electronic health records (EHRs).

Phil Pavitt, CIO of Specsavers, says the company has more than 1,700 stores in 10 countries and the eClinicalWorks platform will help streamline operations worldwide and support the company’s further growth.

Specsavers will use the eClinicalWorks cloud-based platform to hold customers’ optical records while linking into Specsavers’ product data, CRM, finance and store ordering systems. The technology is currently being implemented in New Zealand, before rolling out in European markets, including the UK, and Australia during the next year.

During the past year, eClinicalWorks has secured $100 million in international business and this expansion is the latest in eClinicalWorks’ overall strategy for growth, according to the company.

 “eClinicalWorks has experienced significant growth in the last ten years and we are confident that our global expansion will support the needs of customers who want to deploy a complete, effective, streamlined healthcare IT solution,” Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks, said. “We’ve established six offices across the United States and are looking forward to scaling our solutions to meet the expectations of global customers. We’re proud to expand our footprint with Specsavers and assist over 30,000 of its employees in providing vision and hearing services to patients around the world.”
