Homecare software vendor HHA Exchange to hire 50 in Belfast

19 Jun 2018

After a swell of demand for its services, HHA Exchange has elected to open a software development centre in Belfast, creating 50 jobs.

New York-based homecare health software vendor HHA Exchange has announced that it is to open a new software development centre in Belfast, Northern Ireland, in response to increased demand for its services. It will create 50 jobs in the region.

HHA Exchange provides homecare management software to clients in the US. The web-based platform creates a real-time connection between homecare providers and payers, enabling operational efficiency, increased compliance and improved patient outcomes.

Greg Strobel, CEO of HHA Exchange, said: We have won many new contracts recently, which means we need to scale our business quickly to support this growth.

“Our new tech hub in Belfast will focus on developing cutting-edge technology solutions to meet the needs of our expanding customer base.”

Strobel cited the wealth of software developer talent and skilled workers in general in Belfast as a primary motivation for choosing it as a potential location, as well as the ease of travel between Belfast and New York City.

Invest NI has offered £400,000 of support towards the new jobs. The roles will attract high salaries and contribute more than £2m in wages annually to the Northern Irish economy.

Gary Hanley, senior VP of the Americas at Invest NI, also celebrated the news and said: “We’ve been highlighting Northern Ireland’s reputation as a great location for software development for some time. In this case, HHA Exchange was told about the access to great talent by another US company investing in Northern Ireland. You can’t get a better testimonial than that.

“With several thousand STEM and ICT graduates every year, and a strong link between business and academia to ensure courses provide graduates with the relevant knowledge, it is no wonder the Northern Ireland software sector is performing so well.

“Projects like this, where developers will work on the very latest technology developments, provide a real opportunity to grow the knowledge and skills of the local workforce.”
