Genesis Automation’s health software to be rolled out in NHS hospitals across Scotland

Genesis Automation specialises in solutions that improve patient safety while cutting costs and eliminating waste for healthcare providers

Genesis Automation has signed a multimillion-euro deal with the Scottish government that will see the company’s software rolled out to hundreds of National Health Service hospitals in the country.

The Cork-based healthcare software company, which is led by founder Noel O’Hanlon, said this is the first time that an agreement of this magnitude has been reached by the Scottish government with a technology provider on behalf of NHS Scotland.

Founded in 2010, Genesis Automation specialises in solutions that improve patient safety while cutting costs and eliminating waste for healthcare providers. Its key product is an inventory and cost management software system that allows hospitals to easily manage inventory and supply chains as well as analysing the cost of patient care.

“We are the world leader at what we do and what makes us unique is that our software manages everything from warehouse stock right through to an individual patient in the emergency room,” said Mr O’Hanlon.

“Genesis Automation is already the market leader in England and works closely with the NHS there, but we had no locations in Scotland up to now. This five-year multimillion-euro deal, which comes after a six-month in-depth evaluation, sees us replacing an old system that had been in situ for 20 years. Our software will be in hundreds of hospitals across Scotland,” he added.
