Kainos has received support from Invest Northern Ireland under the European Union’s Investment for Growth and Jobs Programme. The project will be implemented over the next year, performing research and development activities aimed at developing new products aligned with market demand and grow the customer base outside Northern Ireland.

Brendan Mooney, CEO of Kainos said: “Our Evolve Integrated Care software will allow healthcare professionals to access, amend and store patient information as they undertake their work, all with the required degree of security to protect patient confidentiality.

“We have a partnership agreement with Apple which will ensure our software can be used on iPhones and iPads, making our service much more efficient.

“We’ve benefitted from a range of support from Invest NI over the years which has helped us grow and build our product portfolio; create new jobs; and upskill our experienced workforce. This partnership approach has allowed us to scale quickly and increase our competitiveness. Over the coming months we will focus on accelerating this growth even further by expanding sales outside Northern Ireland.”
