IPPOSI played a major role as part of a number of events in the 2017 Health Innovation Week (#EH2030), which took place from Oct. 20th to 25th.
Many IPPOSI members participated, and got involved in a range of events during the week. IPPOSI was specifically involved in the following:
eHealth Innovation Showcase – October 23rd: IPPOSI chaired a patients panel in Dublin Castle as part of the Health Innovation Showcase, which demonstrated the progress made towards the creation of a digital fabric that is transforming the Irish healthcare system. Panel members included:
- Michelle Long, D1Now Young Adult Panel, Galway
- Niamh Malone, BraineyApp
- Anne Lawlor, 22q11 Ireland
eHealth Ireland Ecosystem – October 25th: The ehealth Ecosystem met on Wednesday afternoon in the Raddison Blu Hotel, Golden Lane. Here stakeholders considered the existing projects in Ireland that empower patients to manage their own healthcare, and highlighted ways that patients should be involved in the innovation process. IPPOSI facilitated a number of discussions on a framework of engagement for patients in the Irish health information system. More information about that here.
