Ireland’s largest indigenous healthcare informatics company (my that was a mouthful 😉) has added 20 new jobs in the high-tech programming and support positions. Helix Health (website N/A) was formed after Medicom (www.medicom-solutions.com) and Systems Solutions (www.syssol.ie) merged in January 2007. Currently the companies employs 100 people and had an annual revenue of over €10 million last year. Systems Solutions supplied software to the pharmacy sector in Ireland and the UK, while Medico provided software and technology services to health professionals. Helix Health plans to invest €750,000 each year in research and development.
The company was launched today by Minister of State Tom Kitt who said the company had “the opportunity to build on a shared vision of creating a fully integrated, seamlessly joined-up primary healthcare sector.”
