New Irish healthcare technology company Helix Health says it will add 20 new programming and technical support jobs over the next two years.

The company was formed earlier this year through the merger of healthcare companies Medico and Systems Solutions. Helix employs more than 100 people and has annual revenues of €10m.

Systems Solutions supplied software to the pharmacy sector in Ireland and the UK, while Medico provided software and technology services to health professionals.

Helix Health plans to invest €750,000 each year in research and development.
