HealthBeacon featured in Sunday Times

HealthBeacon was featured in The Sunday Times on July 30th, about the advances and growth in the health technology industry. “Shot in the arm for medtech recruits: Health technology has made huge advances and now provides an array of rewarding job prospects.” By Sorcha Corcoran

“With the increasing use of digital technology in healthcare a number of med-tech start-up companies have emerged which are growing and hiring. These include HealthBeacon in Dublin and Nova Leah and Diaceutics in Dundalk.

HealthBeacon has designed a special bin for patients who self-inject medications at home. It is digitally connected and programmed with their personal medication schedule and uses customised reminders to help them stay on track with their medication. Founded in 2013, the company is looking to take on 20 people in Dublin.

‘We plan to hire people for a wide array of roles including product development, engineering and project management,’ said HealthBeacon’s marketing director, Brie Kelly.  ‘In a little over a year, we have grown from the founders to 17 employees and we expect very high growth over the next five years.’ Kelly moved from Arizona to work for HealthBeacon nine months ago. A marketing graduate, she previously worked for Banner Health, which operates 28 hospitals and facilities across six US states. HealthBeacon’s chief executive and co-founder Jim Joyce was born and raised in Boston and the company opened an office there last March.”
