We believe that health stakeholders in Ireland should work together in partnership for the benefit of patients. Patient Data is a frequent topic of discussion in our patient-led, multi-stakeholder platform which facilitates dialogue between patients, science and industry. Our members call for a national conversation to align patient expectations with the current national strategy.
We believe that health solutions should be arrived at by consensus. IPPOSI is ideally placed to identify where our member interests align and what common objectives can be pursued. Concerns around the national strategy which informs ehealth/digital health in Ireland are universally shared, and our members call for a transparent, sustainable and equitable approach.
We believe that decisions should not be made on behalf of patients but with patients. IPPOSI is an advocate for patients as partners and for patient involvement in decision-making. Patients are solution-oriented, and our members call for an engagement framework to be developed whereby patient voices can be heard and acted upon at multiple timepoints in the design and dvelopment of ehealth / Digital health in Ireland.
The area of health information/patient data/eHealth has been a priority area for IPPOSI for the past seven years, where we have led the debate, highlighted key challenges and proposed solutions through a number of multi-stakeholder initiatives. More recently IPPOSI haved worked with eHealth Ireland on the Individual Health Identifier, the National Electronic Health Record. IPPOSI CEO Derick Mitchell is also an ongoing member of the eHealth Ireland Committee.
