Radisens selected for Healthcare Innovation Hub pilot
Cork, Ireland – July 23, 2012 – Radisens Diagnostics announced today that it has been selected as one of only six companies to partake in the recently announced National Healthcare Innovation Hub (HIH) pilot. Launched last week by the Taoiseach, Tánaiste and the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, the HIH will support the generation, development, validation, evaluation and implementation of new healthcare innovations. This involves the Health Service Executive (HSE) and high-tech companies collaborating to provide an effective route for new healthcare innovations from industry to access the HSE.
As part of the HIH, Radisens is planning a clinical reference testing site in partnership with the HSE and local hospitals. Access to the local healthcare system will allow the company to test and validate their advanced point-of-care technology in a controlled and regulated environment ahead of commercial launch. With Ireland spending up to €1.45 billion annually on managing chronic diabetes alone, the clinical reference site will pilot the design and efficient integration of this disruptive technology, which promises huge savings for chronic disease management.
