Enterprise Ireland Showcases Top Healthcare IT Companies to Serve U.S. Market

NEW YORK, February 9, 2011 – Enterprise Ireland, the government organization
responsible for the development and growth of Irish companies in world markets, will
highlight eight companies that exemplify the country’s preeminence in healthcare
information management during the 2011 Healthcare Information and Management
Systems Society (HIMSS) Convention in Orlando this month.

“The IT for Healthcare market is a rapidly developing sector for Ireland with significant
advances in technology, clinical treatment and management,” said Dan Barry, Senior
Development Advisor at Enterprise Ireland. “The drivers of growth are common
across the Western world – increase in life expectancy, higher prevalence of disease
associated with aging, and more complex treatment plans.”

in Ireland spanning advances in pharmaceuticals, clinical trials and connected health
