Interest is growing to move more Health & Social Care services online - from self-care advice, GP appointments and prescription requests to finding local healthcare providers.

With a significant part of the population lacking basic digital skills, the move to a digitised healthcare system poses some big challenges. In Ireland - and right across Europe - common barriers to communication include differences in language and culture as well as low levels of health literacy. 

At Texthelp we create friendly, easy-to-use assistive technology that boosts health literacy for Health Service Executive patients, their families and carers.

Our award-winning solutions support individuals with literacy and language challenges who can find it difficult to access healthcare content and services online. We’re also making it easier for staff at many primary and secondary care bodies to communicate more effectively in the workplace.
The Health Service Executive is already using Texthelp solutions to help patients and staff, along with over 40 percent of NHS Trusts in the UK.
