The acquisition enhances the support Intouch can offer hospitals and Trusts worldwide. The Synopsis pre-operative assessment software complements the patient flow solutions developed by Intouch, and will offer hospitals improvements and savings.

All Synopsis employees have been transferred to Intouch and all ongoing projects and services from Synopsis will continue uninterrupted and fully supported by Intouch.
