Full Health Medical's head office becomes Google's latest Tech Hub Partner

Dogpatch Labs  - home to Full Health's head office - has today been revealed as Google's latest Tech Hub Partner. Located in Dublin's docklands, Dogpatch is a space that houses some of Europe's most exciting young companies, and has fast become a key player in Dublin's burgeoning start-up scene. The partnership was announced at an event this morning attended by Google representatives and Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation, Mr Richard Bruton. 
The deal puts new and exciting resources at the fingertips of companies who work out of Dogpatch, such as Full Health Medical. These include mentorship and workshops from Dublin Googlers, workspace at 20+ other Tech Hub Partners around the world (incl. San Francisco, Tel Aviv, London), Google product offers and more. 
Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation Mr Richard Bruton this morning said:
"We have great entrepreneurs in Ireland - 2/3 of all new jobs in the Irish economy are created by start-ups and this project will provide more support for entrepreneurs at Dogpatch".
Full Health Medical will hope to capitalise on this fantastic opportunity, as we continue to expand into new geographic markets and further develop our already strong digital health platform. Our CEO and founder Paul McCarthy said:
"Being part of this community will give us access to the heart of the tech ecosystems in a number of key cities"

Our New Recruit: Chief Medical Officer

Dr Jack Halligan, Chief Medical Officer

After a thrilling year studying a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) at INSEAD business school in France, I’m delighted to join Full Health Medical as Chief Medical Officer. As a medical doctor with business education, I look forward to being part of this fast-growing company that has been leading the way in digital preventative health in the UK & Ireland. I’m a sincere believer that many of the modern challenges in healthcare must be tackled using innovative IT solutions, and that’s exactly what Full Health have been doing since they entered the market in 2012. 

Full Health’s award-winning software has been central to the company's success, and I think this is the key reason it is now used extensively by multinational corporations, government organizations, pharmacy chains, private clinics and other healthcare service providers. Our people-friendly medical reports are designed to engage employees in long-term behavioral change, resulting in a happier and more motivated workforce. For employers, this translates into significantly increased employee productivity and reduced absenteeism rates. Increasingly, large employers are seen as a crucial player in tackling big public health issues such as obesity, diabetes, mental health problems and heart disease. Year on year, we are thankfully seeing companies continue to make substantial investment toward the health and well-being of their workforce, and hope to see this trend persist into the future.

This October, with information from the 20,000+ employee medical reports that we have processed, we will be presenting in front of the delegation at the International Society for Quality in Healthcare (ISQua) in Doha, Qatar. Applying these and other insights, we can easily demonstrate to our customers how workplace wellness programs deliver a real and measurable return for companies - up to €6 for every €1 invested, according to recent research*.

In the coming months, I look forward to building out robust workplace wellness programs to add to Full Health's already strong employee screening service. By giving employees the education and guidance tools to take control of their own health we will continue to empower them to live longer, healthier and more productive lives.
