Speaker's Profile:

Jim Joyce, CEO & Co-Founder, HealthBeacon

Jim Joyce, CEO and Co-founder of HealthBeacon, is a serial health and technology entrepreneur. Originally from Boston, he came to Ireland over 14 years ago to run Schering Plough (Merck) pharmaceuticals as their General Manager. After successfully launching the new Irish division for Schering Plough, he identified a market for improving patient care for patients with long-term chronic conditions and left to launch his first company, Point of Care. Point of Care went on to become one of the largest patient services companies in Ireland working with both the HSE and large pharmaceutical companies. It was then acquired by Uniphar, a UK and Ireland pharmaceutical distributor. From his work with both Point of Care and the pharma industry, he saw an opportunity to leverage technology in the home that could support patients on injectable medications, a $50 billion dollar market, and four years ago launched HealthBeacon, with the mission to build smart tools to manage medications.

Today, Jim sits on the board of HealthXL and Point of Care as a non-executive director and is a featured speaker and panellist in the Digital Health Tech community globally.
