eHealth Ireland Committee

eHealth Ireland Committee

A key element of the eHealth Strategy is the establishment of an independent entity called “eHealth Ireland”. This will be established initially on an administrative basis within the HSE, through the formation of the eHealth Ireland Committee, approved by the HSE Directorate. The purpose of the Committee will be to support and guide implementation of the eHealth Strategy through the implementation of the Knowledge and Information plan.

The eHealth Ireland Committee comprises individuals who have very relevant competencies to support the CIO, HSE/Chief Officer, eHealth Ireland (CIO) to implement the strategy. It will review and recommend implementation strategies to the CIO, and advise the CIO and HSE Directorate on ICT investment decisions.

The eHealth Ireland Committee meet four times a year. The inagural meeting was on the 22nd of October 2015.
