Helix Health and Incaplex Announce Strategic Partnership

Helix Health has entered into a partnership with Incaplex to integrate their feature rich travel vaccination application, Inca Clinic, into Helix’s pharmacy and GP software packages.

This new, intuitive and easy-to-use application has been designed to simplify the entire vaccination process, managing patient vaccine schedules and stock, the administration of vaccines and the prescribing of travel medication. The system also provides healthcare professionals with the most up-to-date travel heath news, alerting users to vaccine contradictions and specific destination health risks.

Incaplex is headquartered at NovaUCD, the Innovation and Technology Transfer Centre, at University College Dublin.
