Dublin, 23rd April 2012
– Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD today announced that UK-based Healthcare data analytics and cloud solutions company, iMosphere, is establishing its international headquarters in Limerick with the support of the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

The operation, based at the Nexus Innovation Centre at Limerick University, will play a key role in driving the company’s international business, creating 17 highly skilled jobs over the next 3 years and will be responsible for hosting it cloud based services, sales, marketing and technical support activities for its worldwide activities.

iMosphere is a new company established by FACE UK to manage its hosted and enterprise for the solutions for the North American and world healthcare market. FACE is a major supplier of assessment tools and healthcare software in the UK for the last 20 years. iMosphere specialises in the development of innovative IT solutions for the health care sector, in particular providing healthcare professionals direct access to data in the area of personalization, outcomes measurement, benchmarking, needs assessment and resource allocation in the area of health economics and health care funding.

iMosphere’s goal is to breathe life into healthcare information, enabling it to be used by everyone with an interest in delivering high quality healthcare. The company brings together clinical, informatics and technological expertise to create products that are relevant and easy to use for the payor, provider, practitioner, researcher or analyst.

Making today’s announcement Minister Bruton said: "Today's announcement that iMosphere is locating in Ireland, creating 17 jobs is excellent news. A key part of the Government’s plan for jobs and growth is ensuring that we deepen and develop the impact of multinational investment here. We have a base of multinational companies here that is the envy of the world, but if we are to create the numbers of jobs we need we must build on this and attract a new cohort of companies which we haven’t reached before.
 
“Today’s announcement that five high-growth early-stage European companies are locating operations in Ireland with the creation of 77 jobs is great news. These are companies that might be relatively small now, but have the potential to grow exponentially and create large numbers of jobs here. Through continued implementation of the Action Plan for Jobs I am determined to ensure that we attract a wider spread of multinational companies and help get Ireland back to work”.

Commenting on the announcement Aidan Morris, VP Strategy and Business Development, iMosphere said: “Ireland provides with all the necessary requirements for the establishment of our new international office including a highly skilled workforce, access to an excellent research base at the University of Limerick, and the support of IDA Ireland for this project. These elements were essential when searching for the right location in which to expand and grow our business. We look forward to counting our Irish operation as an integral part of our global operations”.

“iMosphere is an emerging leader in the area of health informatics and as such is a welcome addition to Ireland’s technology services sector. Part of IDA Ireland’s Strategy – Horizon 2020 – is to encourage early stage and internationally traded services sectors to locate and invest in Ireland. iMosphere decision to set up a strategically important part of its business in Limerick, is an endorsement of IDA’s ability to attract emerging multinational businesses to internationalise from Ireland” said IDA Ireland CEO Barry O’Leary.
