A Royal Irish Academy- Health Services Executive Digital Transformation Unit workshop

Digital transformations in the health service have the potential to deliver a significant step change in the delivery of people-centred health care delivery, supporting individual wellness and improved access to services.  
 
In October 2022, the Irish Digital Health Leadership Steering Group proposed a set of principles/guidelines to inform the digital transformation of global health services to the UN Science Summit and will return in March 2023 to explore the potential for a global pilot of the same. 

This workshop provides senior civil service, health leaders and patient advocates in Ireland with the opportunity to shape the further development of these principles with a particular focus on identifying the necessary technological, legislative, fiscal and other actions required to deliver this step change in health care for Irish and global citizens.
 
Speakers will include 

  • Martin Curley MRIA, Director Digital Transformation and Open Innovation, Health Services Executive
  • Dr Michael Harty, former Chairman of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health
  • Professor Linda Newnes, Professor of Cost Engineering, University of Bath
