Softco's software will help some of the leading healthcare providers manage and process health insurance claims

Dublin-based software company SoftCo has clinched deals worth €1m with healthcare providers in the US and Ireland.

Founded in 1990, SoftCo is one of the most successful indigenous Irish Software companies with more than 500,000 business users worldwide.

It is headquartered in Dublin and has offices in the UK, Finland and the US.

Latest customer wins include contracts with UPMC CancerCenter and Providence Hospital in South Carolina as well as Whitfield Clinic in Waterford.

Providence Hospital in Columbia, South Carolina has successfully gone live with SoftCo’s award-winning purchase-to-pay (P2P) healthcare solution. Providence Hospital is a non-profit healthcare organisation with more than 1,900 carers licensed for 304 beds.

US-based UPMC CancerCenter has chosen SoftCo eClaims to deliver a fully electronic automated healthcare claims management solution. UPMC CancerCenter is one of the largest integrated community networks of cancer physicians and healthcare specialists in the US, with 39 locations treating 74,000 patients annually.


“It is a strong validation of the benefits delivered by SoftCo eClaims and, following other recent successes in the US, expands our market significantly,” said CEO Anton Scott.

SoftCo has also launched a new version of SoftCo eClaims focused on delivering cost savings to hospitals.

eClaims is a recent development set to revolutionise the way claims are processed in the Irish Healthcare Industry. It is an initiative spearheaded by the three main health insurers, Laya Healthcare, Aviva Health and Vhi Healthcare and is being coordinated by Insurance Ireland.

SoftCo eClaims 2.0 is live in Whitfield Clinic in Waterford, one of Irelands leading private hospitals.
