In the second episode of our series, Digital Health: Putting People First, IPPOSI CEO Derick Mitchell interviewed Dr Grainne Courtney, HIV and Genitourinary consultant at St James’s Hospital and the HSE and former Chief Clinical Information Officer at St James’s. They discussed Grainne’s role as CCIO in delivering an electronic patient record for in-patients at St. James’s, the healthcare benefits for both clinicians and patients of moving from paper to electronic records, our Citizens’ Jury on Access to Health Information, and what Grainne hopes to see in the future regarding a patient portal in Ireland.
