Considerations on Electronic Health Records

The third official meeting of the eHealth Ireland Ecosystem was held on Wednesday 25th November 2015 at the Aviva Stadium Conference Centre, Dublin 4. Given that a national Electronic Health Record has been identified as a key requirement for the future delivery of healthcare in Ireland, the programme was developed in consultation with the HSE. The meeting was attended by at least 320 delegates.

The first session of the afternoon, The Vision, provided an insight in to how the HSE envision the EHR and how EHRs have successfully been implemented across Catalonia and within a Dublin Hospital.

During the second session, On the Job, we heard from those working day to day in hospitals and in general practice – all passionate about EHRs and how they could improve their work environment and patient care.

The final session, Challenges, and how to meet them explored some of the key challenges we face when implementing EHRs such as resources, privacy, integration, and legacy systems.
