17 May 2016

Two local IT players have formed a new company to specifically target a share of the Irish €875m eHealth Strategy

Two independent enterprise IT players, Triangle and AbedGraham, have forged an alliance specifically to target a share of the €875m Irish eHealth Strategy.

The HSE is embarking on a €875m eHealth strategy and, earlier this year, it was revealed that 40 new jobs are to be created by the HSE’s technology arm eHealth Ireland during 2016.

The partnership between AbedGraham and Triangle will see both firms working on the delivery of enterprise IT solutions focusing on clinical workflows, security and mobility.

Triangle has also appointed AbedGraham’s founding partner, Saif Abed, as the medical director of its healthcare division, Triangle Health.

“The HSE’s e-Health strategy recognises the importance of technology in improving care delivery,” said Aidan Coyne, Principal at Triangle Health.

We are dedicated to the future of eHealth in Ireland. This partnership with AbedGraham and the appointment of Dr Saif Abed to our team demonstrates our commitment and we are looking forward to working with them in helping the healthcare sector generate efficiencies through the use of technology-enabled solutions.”
