New York based HHAeXchange is expanding its global operations and investing in Northern Ireland for the first time.

The company has just opened a 50-strong software development centre, and is actively hiring technical talent to support its growth.

Our new tech hub in Belfast will focus on developing cutting-edge technology solutions to meet the needs of our expanding customer base.

- Greg Strobel, CEO of HHAeXchange

HHAeXchange is the leading homecare management software solution in the United States. The company’s innovative and user-friendly web-based platform provides a real-time connection between homecare providers and payers, enabling operational efficiency, increased compliance, and improved patient outcomes.

Greg Strobel, CEO of HHAeXchange said:“We have won many new contracts recently, which means we need to scale our business quickly to support this growth. Our new tech hub in Belfast will focus on developing cutting-edge technology solutions to meet the needs of our expanding customer base.’

Healthcare and homecare in the U.S. is continuing to grow at a rapid pace. The combination of increasing numbers of people over the age of 65, and new legislation including the Affordable Care Act and the 21st Century Cures Act has created an increasing demand for solutions to streamline healthcare services and improve patient outcomes.

“Our software serves as the single source of truth for payers and providers, improving transparency and communication for better homecare environments.

“The Belfast team will focus on new enterprise technology developments that are central to our business’ growth. A key factor in choosing to open an office in Northern Ireland was the level of software knowledge and skilled talent available here, in addition to the location’s ease of travel from New York City’, said Strobel.

Invest NI has offered £400,000 of support towards the new jobs. The roles will attract high salaries and contribute over £2m in wages annually to the Northern Ireland economy.

We’ve been highlighting Northern Ireland’s reputation as a great location for software development for some time. In this case, HHAeXchange was told about the access to great talent by another US company investing in Northern Ireland. You can’t get a better testimonial than that!

“With several thousand STEM and ICT graduates every year, and a strong link between business and academia to ensure courses provide graduates with the relevant knowledge, it is no wonder the Northern Ireland software sector is performing so well.

“Projects like this, where developers will work on the very latest technology developments, provide a real opportunity to grow the knowledge and skills of the local workforce.’
