Our History

Established in November 2009, Entec Health emerged as a vision from 3 founders. Each founder brought a unique perspective from diverse yet related professional fields which ranged from the healthcare industry, banking sector IT programme delivery and finance services software sector.

One common interest was the convergence of digital technologies and health. The collective vision was to pursue building a company that would develop, market and support digital technologies that make a difference to health outcomes, patient experience and the cost of health delivery.

We recognise that the UK healthcare services provider sector had been working hard on back-end IT and infrastructure to support the health system.

We want to approach the health ecosystem from the other side. We are interested in looking at the front-end, the patient-facing interface and identifying opportunities for bringing to market, frontline digital technologies that made a positive difference to patient management and supporting health professionals to do their jobs more effectively, more efficiently.

This is what we are pursuing and we welcome the opportunity to work and collaborate with like-minded people with the same vision and goals.

Technology Business Partners

We work with a number of world-class technology partners who have relevant solutions and capability in Medical Technologies and IT design, development and delivery for healthcare and enterprise management.

Our Values

We bring passion, imagination and practical intelligence to every collaboration. We believe that this leads us to extraordinary results and creates a positive experience for our clients, our business partners, key stakeholders and our internal team.
