Healthmail nominated for GPBuddy.ie Award
We are delighted with the recent announcement that Healthmail has been shortlisted for a GP Buddy award in the category of ‘Best GP and Hospital Collaboration! Huge congratulations to all staff in the Access to Information team, led by Gemma Garvan.
Healthmail, secure clinical email, is a service that allows health care providers to send and receive clinical patient information in a secure manner. Users are issued with @healthmail.ie email accounts and this will allow them to communicate patient identifiable clinical information with clinicians in primary and secondary care. The service was originally launched in 2014 for General Practitioners and their staff but has since been expanded to Community Pharmacies. All HSE and Voluntary Hospital email addresses are automatically connected to Healthmail along with another 30+ healthcare agencies nationally. Healthmail is configured to be easy to use and will improve electronic communication for the benefit of patients and clinicians.
