We are strong believers in safety and use compliance as a guiding framework to ensure practices can deliver patient care in the best possible environment
Agilio started from a vision to create the UK’s leading practice operations software company. CODE, the leading provider of software-led compliance and HR services into the UK dental market, provided the first platform for Agilio. A few months later we added Isopharm which brought an established reputation for delivering the UK’s leading online training for over half of all UK dental professionals allowing them to fulfil their CPD requirements.
Now united, the two companies share their combined 40 years’ experience to offer a comprehensive range of products and services to support the safe and efficient running of healthcare practices.
Our team – and their experience – is a huge part of what makes Agilio such a trusted face in the healthcare world. Here are some of the people who make us tick:
Dr Sian joined Agilio as Executive Chairman in Nov 2019. He brings extensive experience in Health IT having led global business for over 20 years. He was previously CEO at Allocate Software and led the scaling up of that business into a global leader in SaaS based human resource management solutions. Prior to that Dr Sian spent 20+ years at IMS Health (now IQVIA) latterly as SVP Global Operations managing a team of over 6000 people across the globe and was part of the leadership team that led the hugely successful IPO of that business on the NYSE in 2014.
Neil joined Agilio in March 2020 and has been in senior leadership roles within the technology & healthcare IT business sectors over the last 15 years. Neil was MD at Servelec Healthcare in their Community, Mental Health and Acute markets and was previously MD at EMIS Health during the migration of over 5000 GP practices from legacy products to the then new SaaS based EMIS Web, a project that today still rates as the largest IT upgrade in NHS history. Neil was a non executive of Leeds based Pharmacy2U and represented the EMIS shareholding until 2014. He also took the EMIS www.patient.info website from 1million unique subscribers to over 15million in 3 years. Prior to that Neil held senior roles at ISP Plusnet before becoming CEO after BT acquired them in 2007.
Jen joined the Agilio team in November 2019 as Group CFO. After qualifying as a pharmacist, Jen turned to accountancy, starting her career at E&Y before joining the private sector with roles at BT and Pearson. Jen has spent the majority of her career in senior roles in high growth businesses providing both strategic and operational leadership. Prior to joining the Agilio Group Jen was CFO of two leading pharmaceutical services business, Kinapse and Fishawack Health Group helping deliver on their ambitious growth strategies.
Karen joined the CODE team in 2015 in a senior management role, bringing her knowledge and experience within operations and human resources to the team. Throughout the last 6 years, Karen has been a fundamental part in building the dental team, bringing in further expertise to strengthen the support for practices. Alongside the previous CEO and the senior team Karen helped develop the market leading compliance software solution iComply used by over 2000 Dental practices. Using her human resource skills, Karen is the founder of the iTeam HR service and continues to be integral to its ongoing development. Karen joined the board as Managing Director for CODEplan in April 2019 and became part of the Agilio Group in November 2019, leading the dental team, to continue to deliver the leading compliance and practice management product solution.
Paul joined Agilio in June 2020 when Isopharm Limited joined the CODE Group, having held a senior position throughout company’s history. Paul was instrumental in the creation of Isopharm back in 2000, helping to grow the business into the Hospital sector with compliance, training and services focusing on decontamination validation and infection control, attaining over 90% of NHS Hospitals using the company’s validation and reporting software systems. Paul was invited to join the Isopharm Board in 2016 and, with the release of new standards and guidance to the Dental sector, helped to pioneer the company offerings into this new market, culminating in the creation of Isopharm Dental CPD which reached in excess of 80,000 members and 50,000 subscribers over three years, becoming the largest CPD provider to Dental Professionals in the UK.
