A health technology company that specializes in helping patients better follow their medication regimen is coming to Reno.
DayaMed announced on Thursday that the company is relocating its headquarters to the Reno-Sparks area, bringing an estimated 300 jobs in the process.
The company, which is based in Ontario, Canada, specializes in cloud-based, digital medication adherence software for smartphones, tablets and wearables. DayaMed’s technology also uses analytics from artificial intelligence to measure and predict the impact of medications, including real-time outcomes.
DayaMed, which also has an office in Memphis, Tennessee, picked Reno after some serious competition, according to CEO Justin Daya,who spoke at the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada’s annual State of the Economy luncheon. Daya described the access the company had to academia and the leadership in Northern Nevada as a key reason for the company’s decision to choose the Reno-Sparks area.
“The access here … is just fantastic,” Daya said.
