Kainos Group plc (KNOS), a leading provider of digital services and platforms, announces that its healthcare division, Kainos Evolve, has signed a deal with the Health Service Executive of Ireland and Saolta University Health Care Group in Galway for the provision of the Kainos Evolve Electronic Medical Record (EMR) solution.
