Irish tech-health provider VideoDoc is to create 30 new jobs which will come on stream over the next 12 months.
Founded in 2014, VideoDoc provides a web portal and mobile app healthcare service that allows patients to consult with their doctor or see a VideoDoctor through online video, using a webcam or smartphone camera.
The company confirmed the appointment of former Tánaiste Mary Harney as its chairperson and Dr. Conor O’Hanlon, a founding member of the Irish College of General Practitioners, is its new Medical Director.
The announcements forllow a €2.5m investment, a proportion of which will be allocated to the recruitment of GPs in Ireland and the UK to ensure that the waiting time to see a doctor will remain at its current time of under three minutes, as the service grows and develops.
VideoDoc currently partners with several high-profile health providers across Ireland including the VHI, Beaumont Hospital, Group Schemes in Ireland and Clanwilliam Healthcare, as well the NHS in the UK.
Commenting on the announcement, Ms Harney said she was delighted to be appointed chair of the company, noting that eHealth, and telemedicine in particular, has unlocked huge potential across several tech-embracing countries "I believe that online consultations are not a replacement for the well-established GP service that currently exists across Ireland and the UK, but rather complements and supports it."
