We are thrilled to announce that we've acquired KareInn.  

At the heart of our mission is a commitment to improve the quality of life for care providers and those they care for. We accomplish this by streamlining and digitising the social care sector, working hard to continually develop and expand our range of integrated solutions to meet the ever-changing needs of care providers.  

Adding KareInn will further enhance our Connected Care Platform, which iscurrently used by over 6,000 care providers across the UK. The platform offers a wide array of solutions, including care planning, wellness and activities, medication management, and care home operations.  

As part of our 'Connected Care' vision, we have previously acquired companies such as Oomph! Wellness, ATLAS, and Redcrier, which will be further developed along the line. These organisations have also closely partnered with KareInn, demonstrating the strategic synergies between our company and KareInn. This alignment is pivotal as we work towards a more cohesive and comprehensive approach to connected care. 


Who is KareInn?

KareInn is a pioneering company in digital care technology. Their team has previously developed highly innovative platforms for the NHS and continues to transform care homes' care outcomes and operational efficiencies, enabling more person-led care.  


For nearly a decade, KareInn has provided care organisations with a comprehensive suite of digital care management and insight tools that frontline teams find easy to learn and quick to implement, serving some of the top care providers in the residential, dementia and nursing sectors.  


Why has Person Centred Software acquired KareInn? 

Our company and KareInn offer an outstanding array of core capabilities that cater to the needs of different stakeholders, with a strong focus on the people in care. The ethos behind both companies is aligned with a shared goal of improving the lives and outcomes of individuals in care. 


The acquisition will enable us to combine our expertise, knowledge, and resources to provide customers with better products and services. It will also allow us to expand our product portfolio and offer more comprehensive solutions. 

KareInn's proficiency in digital care planning software will enhance our current offerings, allowing us to provide a complete end-to-end solution to customers. By leveraging our respective strengths, we will be better positioned to serve customers and improve the quality of care for each individual. 

Bringing groundbreaking innovation to the market  

KareInn is known for its innovative approach to the market. With the support of our Connected Care Platform and our team of experts, KareInn will now be a part of a larger organisation. This will allow them to combine their strengths and collectively support and influence the agenda on how interoperability and shared care records are shaped across the adult social care sector.  

Our company and KareInn are in sync regarding the importance of data and what we can do with it, particularly in harnessing the information collected within our systems each day and surfacing the right information to leverage insights that are visible to carers, enhance each care interaction, and deliver the best-personalised care to the individual.  

Kate Colborne-Baber, MD at KareInn says:  

‘’With our shared commitment to improving care outcomes for those living and working within care settings, particularly by better leveraging shared data via cleverly connected systems, we are delighted to be joining forces with Person Centred Software. KareInn's successes to date have resulted from providing customers with a best-in-class care management system with unique tools and groundbreaking insights that empower managers and frontline carers with the latest knowledge right at their fingertips.

With the backing of Person Centred Software, it will be fantastic to be part of a larger organisation where we can combine our strengths and collectively support and influence the agenda on how interoperability and shared care records are shaped across the adult social care sector to deliver the next advances in care. No one organisation can be everything to everybody, so we must work together to create a better tomorrow for the sector we support’’. 

Johan Jardevall, CEO at Person Centred Software, says: 

‘’We are delighted to welcome KareInn into the Person Centred Software family. Their innovative software solution has revolutionised how care homes manage their operations, allowing them to provide exceptional care whilst streamlining processes. This acquisition aligns perfectly with our mission to empower care providers with cutting-edge technology that puts people at the centre of everything we do. 


 By combining our expertise and resources, we can accelerate the development of comprehensive solutions that address the evolving needs of the care sector. Together, we will unlock new opportunities for innovation, enabling care homes to deliver personalised, compassionate care more efficiently than ever before. This acquisition represents a new, exciting phase in our journey, and we are eager about the enhanced capabilities that will bolster our efforts in shaping the future of care management software’’ 


What does this mean for current KareInn customers? 

KareInn will remain an independent brand, and the KareInn 3.0 platform will continue to be invested in. The experienced KareInn team will continue to support its customers and partnerships.  In addition, customers will have the opportunity to utilise the Connected Care Platform, which offers a variety of innovative integrated solutions. In the future, users of KareInn and Person Centred Software's digital social care record system, mCare, will benefit from access to a broader, stronger, and more comprehensive feature set.
