HealthBeacon Builds Presence in Asia

HealthBeacon started off in Ireland piloting its technology with the local Irish divisions of pharmaceutical giants. These same great clients networked us into their global organisation which led to deployment of our HealthBeacon Medication Management technology across 10 Countries: USA, Canada, across the EU, South Africa, Baltics, Brazil, Israel and South Africa. We had to develop global organisational muscles early in our life, our clients made it a prerequisite. Now we are heading to Asia!

We will be featured on two panels at large Digital Health events in both Mumbai and Singapore.

The first will be a global gathering for HealthXL presented by Abbott and featuring panelists and speakers that include Arun Kumar, Head of South Asia for Bayer and Dr Arvind Sivaramakrishnan, Chief Information Officer at Apollo Hospitals

The second event is a panel about Digitising Patient Care featuring Jim Joyce, Everett Leonidas from Aviva Ventures which will be moderated by Susanna Hasenoehrl of Joice Nutrition and hosted by SG Innovate in Singapore.

In collaboration with these two great organisations, HealthXL and SG Innovate, we will begin  introducing ourselves and our technology into the Singapore, Australian and Indian markets. These three markets will become our first wave of Asia-Pac HealthBeacon deployments.

Operating a young technology company across 10 countries from our two office locations,  Dublin and Boston required us to leverage scaling technology platforms, find excellent local partners, build scalable roll-out processes that are all driven by a team that thinks globally.

HealthBeacon Sponsors Ireland’s Cancer Fund for Children

HealthBeacon will be supporting the Cancer Fund for Children as the “Speakeasy” Sponsor at this years’ Gala Ball. The Gala Ball is part of a 5-year program that aims to raise €1m for the Cancer Fund for Children. They are in large part supported by Ireland’s Digital Economy with its inaugural 2017 Gala Ball raising more than €137,000. The goal is to build a brand new therapeutic centre for children diagnosed with cancer, and their families, in Ireland.

Cancer Fund for Children has been supporting families for over forty years. They offer practical, emotional and financial help and also include stress-relieving, nurturing breaks at their therapeutic centre Daisy Lodge in County Down. Unfortunately, the overwhelming need has the centre operating at full capacity and created a long wait list for families.

This fundraising program will bring Daisy Lodge Connacht to the west of Ireland. This worthy project is supported by prominent Irish citizens such as professional golfer Rory McIlroy and will be attended by over 300 people including Paul Harrington, Bobby Kerr, Holly Carpenter and Eddie Irvine.

“HealthBeacon is delighted to be sponsoring this great event and worthy cause. The Cancer Fund for Children has ambitious plans for their new therapeutic centre in Mayo. This site will be entirely dedicated to support children and their families that have been diagnosed with cancer.” Jim Joyce, CEO HealthBeacon
