Irish medical software firm Oneview seals major New York deal

Oneview Healthcare has secured a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal in the United States, as the NYU Langone Medical Centre agrees to incorporate its medical software into its facilities.

The Irish firm's technology is initially contracted to NYU's 374-bed Helen L and Martin S Kimmel Pavilion site, and will then be rolled out across the university's system, which consists of five hospitals, clinics and medical centres throughout the five boroughs and the tri-state area.

The news comes just over two months after Oneview became the first Irish company to be floated on the Australian Securities Exchange.

That €40 million initial public offering was made on March 17th to tie in with St Patrick's Day and placed Oneview's value at €140 million.

Oneview is a Blackrock-based global software company that develops platforms to help patients take a more active role in their care.

It provides outpatient and inpatient platforms and is already live in three hospitals in Australia, three in San Francisco, two in Dubai, and in Dublin's LauraLynn Children's Hospice.

Oneview's President and founder Mark McCloskey is currently a finalist in the 'Emerging' category of 2016's EY Entrepreneur of the Year programme. Speaking to Vincent Wall on Newstalk's Business Breakfast in March,

McCloskey promised that "there will definitely be increases in employment [at Oneview], not only in Dublin, but in America and Australia".

With NYU secured, McCloskey said in a statement this week:

"Oneview is honoured to have been selected by one of the United States’ leading academic medical organisations where we believe our unique software will provide further innovation.

"The Oneview platform helps improve productivity, reduce waste and reduce costs for hospitals, and at the same time helps deliver better clinical outcomes for patients while dramatically improving the experience for patients while they are in hospital".

Mr McCloskey continued:

"Patients at NYU facilities will benefit from the Oneview software, which includes apps that can be installed on personal tablets and smartphones, which will allow patients to learn more about their condition, track their treatment and progress.

"In addition, patients can exchange messages with doctors and nursing staff, access a wide range of information and entertainment via the internet, live free to air and cable TV and stay connected to family and friends via live video streaming services such as Skype".
