Ireland’s eHealth Transformation
Prescriptions for Success
Ambitious plans are underway to reform Ireland’s health sector. A key enabler of Irish health reform is digitisation, with the national Electronic Health Record as its centre-piece.
Across the developed world, public health systems are faced with a similar set of challenges: resources are limited following post-crisis budget cuts, while demands on these systems are mounting as citizens live longer and increasingly suffer from chronic illness. As our world becomes more connected through technology, patients come to expect more from healthcare providers and have new means through which to hold them to account.
Our ehealth report outlines key priorities to enable Ireland to deliver eHealth successfully.
