The first discussion on Sept 20, 2021 focused on evaluating Ireland’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and discussing its implications for health information in Ireland. We invited Muiris O’Connor, Assistant Secretary of the Dept. of Health, to discuss what Ireland can learn from a health information perspective.
We were also joined by Loretto Grogan (National Clinical Information Officer, HSE) and Dr. Robert O’Connor (Head of Research, Irish Cancer Society), who both provided insights and perspectives on how health information has played a role in their work over the past 18 months.
Sara Hurley, a juror from the IPPOSI Citizens’ Jury on Access to Health Information, also joined us to represent the jury and share her perspective on the future of Ireland’s health information system.
