Cerner Expand in Dublin

Healthcare IT supplier Cerner creates 40 new software jobs as it adds European Technical Support to Dublin Operations

 

 

 

Amanda Green - Cerner CorporationCerner Corporation, a global supplier of healthcare information technology, is expected to create up to 40 new software jobs by the end of 2009 as it expands its presence in its Dublin headquarters by adding a customer multilingual software  technical  support service for European markets

 

 

IDA Ireland had worked strenuously to attract  Cerner  to Ireland initially and is currently working closely with the company to assist in the implementation of this expansion.


Making  the  announcement  Tánaiste  and  Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Mary Coughlan TD  said, “Cerner is an example of a company   involved   in  convergence  technology  between  the  information technology  and healthcare sectors, which is an area of strategic focus for IDA  Ireland  in its attraction of foreign direct investment into Ireland. Ireland  has  a proven reputation for satisfying the needs of international companies,  such  as  Cerner,  which  operate  in  high technology areas of business."


 

She continued "This  Cerner  investment is a further significant endorsement of this reputation and of Ireland as an emerging European innovation leader in multi-lingual, technical and customer support activities for client focused international companies.”


Cerner's Dublin operation,  which was established  in  2007,  employs 14 people and is the company’s localisation  and customisation headquarters for its solutions and services deployed in Europe. The  expansion  of  Cerner  in  Ireland  is  due  to  the centralisation of activities at the Dublin operation and Cerner’s need to provide centralised capacity  for  its  technical  Cerner  Millennium  support services from a location  within  the  European  marketplace.  The rapid growth of Cerner’s client  base  in  Europe  and  Ireland  has spurred this demand.

 


Its solutions optimise  processes  for  healthcare  organisations  and are licensed by more than 8,000 facilities around  the world, including approximately 2,100 hospitals, 3,300 physician practices, 500 ambulatory facilities, 600 home-health facilities and 1,500 retail pharmacies.  

 


Amanda  Green (pictured above), Cerner Ireland managing director, said “Cerner chose Ireland for the initial operation and for this expansion due to the availability of a  highly  skilled  workforce with multilingual capabilities, a competitive cost  regime  relative  to a number of other European locations, and a very favourable business environment. By having a presence in Ireland, Cerner is well-positioned to support its growing global business.”


“Creating  centralised  multilingual  technical support jobs for our Cerner Millennium  system,  puts  Cerner in a strong position to capitalise on the growth   in  healthcare  information  technology  spending,”  Green  added.

 


“Through the success of our existing operation in Ireland, we are confident that  Dublin is the right location to help us grow our international market presence. Greater integration and convergence among the various segments of the  healthcare industry, and a growing need for increased efficiencies and lower  healthcare  costs are the main driving forces behind this heightened demand.”
