Maincare provides software for French public hospitals and health authorities.

Montagu has agreed to sell Maincare, a software provider for French public hospitals and health authorities, to Docaposte.

Maincare, headquartered near Bordeaux, provides a hospital information system that aims to help public hospitals, payers, and insurers put effective digital initiatives into practice for patients.

The deal is pending approval from the necessary regulatory bodies.

“Maincare is a great example of Montagu’s strategy of partnering with leading companies offering critical products and services,” said Guillaume Jabalot, partner at Montagu. “We are proud of the success Maincare has achieved and we are certain that the company will continue to thrive under the ownership of Docaposte.”

Major investments in R&D have helped Maincare develop new-generation electronic patient records as well as modernise the firm’s technology, according to a statement.

Montagu purchased Maincare in 2018, and the two companies have since collaborated to address the shifting demands of policymakers and hospitals, particularly during the Covid-19 outbreak, the statement said.

Docaposte, headquartered in Paris, is the digital arm of La Poste, the French postal service.

Montagu, a private equity firm, manages €11 billion in assets and partners with companies with enterprise values between €150 million and €2 billion. It has offices in Frankfurt, London, Luxembourg, Paris and Warsaw.
