A radiographer by background, she has over 18 years of experience in the Health Sector with five of these directly involved in Informatics. Having completed an MSc in Health Informatics (TCD) in 2010 she joined the national implementation team of the NIMIS project as both a project manager and subject matter expert. In this role Yvonne has driven the implementation of PACS/RIS systems into a large number of hospital with a broad range of complexities.
In 2015 Yvonne was appointed as Chief Clinical Information Officer for the Health Services Executive (Ireland).
