Leading medical practice management software provider, Genie Solutions, is pleased to announce that it has been acquired by The Citadel Group, a leading Australian enterprise software firm.

Genie was founded in 1995 and has grown to become the market leader in software for medical specialists to help manage their practices more efficiently.

Mr James Scollay, Genie Solutions CEO, said he was excited for the next phase of Genie’s growth as part of The Citadel Group.

“Genie will be a great fit amongst Citadel’s group of companies, particularly within its
healthcare software segment where it has built a market leading presence in clinical and diagnostic software, servicing public and private sector clients throughout Australia and the UK,” Mr Scollay said.

“Like Genie, Citadel prioritises the improvement of health outcomes and securely managing critical data and systems so that medical professionals can focus on their patients. We look forward to sharing our knowledge and benefiting from Citadel’s significant scale and resources as we continue to invest in our people and our product, to grow our leadership position in software for medical practitioners,” he said.

The Citadel Group CEO Mr Mark McConnell said: “We’re delighted to welcome Genie into The Citadel Group family. James and the team have built a strong and fast-growing business through its high-quality product offering and the superior experience it provides for its many medical specialist clients. The combined entity is
now a clear market leader across many health specialisations, and we intend to invest heavily in innovation to extend Genie’s dominant position, enabling the continuation of its exciting growth trajectory.”

Mr Scollay thanked IFM Private Equity for its partnership approach and its strong investment in Genie as its majority owner since 2017.
