Irish Platform for Patient Organisations, Science & Industry

Evaluating Ireland’s COVID-19 pandemic response and discussing its implications for health information in Ireland.

We have invited some leaders in the areas of health information and health research to share their experiences of working through the COVID-19 pandemic. This is an opportunity to discuss what went right in Ireland’s response, what could have been improved, and what Ireland can learn from its pandemic response in relation to the future of the Irish health system and digital health infrastructure.

Muiris O’Connor, Assistant Secretary of the Department of Health will discuss what Ireland can learn from COVID-19 from a health information perspective, in particular:

  • Where did we rise to the challenge?
  • Where did we fall down?
  • What went well for us?
  • What weren’t we able to tackle?

We are also delighted to welcome panellists Loretto Grogan (National Clinical Information Officer, HSE) and Dr. Robert O’Connor (Head of Research, Irish Cancer Society) to the discussion. The panellists will respond to the update from the Department of Health and provide their perspectives and insights on how health information has played a role in their work over the past 18 months. In particular, they will consider the influence that policy can have on the future of the Irish health system and digital health infrastructure. We also welcome Sara Hurley, a juror from the IPPOSI Citizens’ Jury on Access to Health Information, to share her perspective on the future of Ireland’s health information system.
