Ireland tipped for key role in digital health

Research by the Irish Medtech Association and Connected Health Skillnet has shown that nine out of ten business leaders expect Ireland to play a key role in delivering digital health solutions.

The two groups recently published a first-of-its-kind digital health roadmap for addressing skill needs.

Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Simon Coveney is equally upbeat about the Irish prospects in the sector.

“Ireland has the potential to establish itself as a leader in the digital health sector which is projected to be worth in excess of $1.5 trillion by 2030,” he said.

“Ireland’s ecosystem already boasts the world’s top medtech, biopharma, and technology companies, complimented by dynamic startups alongside other key players such as design and research experts.

“Delivering industry-led training with Skillnet Ireland will help Ireland’s knowledge economy compete globally by staying ahead of the latest trends in technology and business”.
