swiftQueue is a Cloud based SaaS platform that allows hospitals and clinics to communicate available appointments for patients to manage their next visit. The healthcare appointment software has been shown to significantly reduce waiting times and non-attendance rates.

The funding round comprises a €300,000 investment by Kernel Capital through the Bank of Ireland Seed and Early Stage Equity Fund with the rest of the funds provided by Enterprise Ireland.

As a result of this significant investment, the company is looking forward to expanding its team over the next year to support growth into international markets.

Brendan Casey, SwiftQueue’s Chief Executive commented “Increasing efforts to address the challenges in today’s healthcare systems have seen a greater emphasis on the use of technology to deliver integrated and efficient solutions that improve patient engagement.”

It is expected that over one million online appointments will be delivered through the platform this year.
