A HEALTHCARE TECHNOLOGY company, based in Dublin, has announced the creation of up to 80 new jobs over the course of 2014.
Sláinte Healthcare said today the new roles will be in addition to the 40 jobs it has already created in Ireland to date. The jobs will be created in software engineering, testing, business analysis, client administration, finance and marketing.
The company provides software to drive efficiencies and reduce costs in hospitals and healthcare organisations by enabling them to move to paperless systems. With headquarters in Sandyford in Dublin, the Company currently employs over 90 people across its offices in Ireland, the Middle East, Australia and the UK.
Sláinte was a participant in the Health Innovation Hub and today ministers Richard Bruton and James Reilly announced a seconf call for projects to take part in the initiative.
“Through this hub, healthcare companies can gain access to the health system to trial their products and services, honing and improving them in response to real-life demands,” Bruton explained. “The health system, in turn, benefits by gaining access to cutting edge products and services to solve real problems it faces.”
“We are determined to press on with the development of this project as part of our overall plan to support Irish enterprises and create the jobs we need,” he added.
