DUBLIN, Ireland - Irish tech-health provider, VideoDoc, which received a 2.5 million euro investment in the company recently, has now decided to create 30 new jobs.
The company, which provides a web portal and mobile app healthcare service and allows patients to consult with their doctor or see a VideoDoctor through an online video platform, said that it will be creating the new jobs over the next 12 months.
VideoDoc has also confirmed the appointment of former Tánaiste Mary Harney as its chairperson.
The company has said that a part of the investment recently received will be allocated to the recruitment of GP's in Ireland and the U.K.
Founded in 2014, VideoDoc has confirmed the appointment of Dr. Conor O’Hanlon, a founding member of the Irish College of General Practitioners, as its new Medical Director.
Speaking about the announcement, Harney said she was "delighted" to be appointed chair of the company.
Harney added that eHealth, and telemedicine, in particular, has unlocked huge potential across several tech-embracing countries.
Harvey added, "I believe that online consultations are not a replacement for the well-established GP service that currently exists across Ireland and the U.K., but rather complements and supports it.”
Mary O’Brien, CEO of VideoDoc, said, ”We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with our new investors and to be outlining the exciting growth plans this partnership will facilitate. The addition of Ms Harney as chair and Dr O’Hanlon as Medical Director will provide invaluable experience and skill to our senior team as we look to expand our offering across the Irish and U.K. markets, as well as further afield.”
