Better outcomes, lower costs, healthier people: the power of digital transformation
WhenWednesday, December 7, 2022, 09:00 - 14:30
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.
