Irish technology company Accenture has acquired Canadian healthcare consulting service provider Gevity for an undisclosed sum.

Services provided by Gevity help healthcare industry clients transform their businesses through innovative technology solutions.

The acquisition is anticipated to enable Accenture to expand its capabilities to deliver health transformation services in Canada and internationally.

Founded in 1995 and headquartered in Victoria, British Colombia, Gevity has a team of nearly 100 experts and practitioners across Canada.

Its clients in healthcare include public and private payers, regulators and healthcare non-profit stakeholder organisations.

Gevity offers strategic consultancy services that include health systems integration, informatics and analytics, and solution implementation and programme management.

The company is also engaged in supporting its clients through digital transformations and information systems design implementations.

Besides, it offers proprietary methods and tools to support its work, including project and program management, inter-organisational collaboration, and health informatics.

Accenture Canada president Jeffrey Russell said: “The addition of Gevity will expand our capabilities in delivering health transformation services in Canada and other global markets.

“Gevity’s talented team and track record of success combined with Accenture’s national leadership in transformation services and strong ecosystem partnerships will strengthen our capabilities from coast to coast.

“Moreover, the acquisition positions Accenture to lead the wave of tech-enabled health innovation that places people’s health at the centre to improve access, experience, and outcomes.”

Gevity’s team located across Canada in Victoria, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia as well as in the US and the Philippines will join Accenture.

The acquisition, which is Accenture Canada’s second in the year so far, is expected to boost its capabilities in the Canadian market.

Toronto-based Oracle Cloud service provider Cloudworks is its previous acquisition in 2021.

Last year, the Irish firm acquired Avenai, an Ottawa consultancy focused on public service organisations, and Callisto Integration, a provider of consulting and technology services in digital manufacturing.
