Keith is the current NIMIS Programme Lead. He has been involved with the NIMIS project since its early inception in September 2008 as Radiographer lead. He played a key role in the procurement and subsequent design phase of the project. He took on a Project Manager role from 2013 overseeing the successful implementation of the NIMIS system across many of the 40 sites currently operating the NIMIS solution.
Keith took on the challenge of NIMIS Programme lead in 2015 and has endeavoured to balance the requirement to continue and complete system implementations with that of optimising system performance and functionality, whilst seeking to deliver system enhancements where possible and practical to do so. He remains a passionate believer in the ability of NIMIS to significantly improve the imaging service provided to our patients.
In his pre NIMIS life, Keith qualified as a radiographer from UCD and worked for 10 years in St. James’s Hospital being involved in the implementation of the Cerner EPR/RIS/PACS on site as PACS Manager.
In his free time he is a self confessed bookworm and Sci Fi nerd. A passionate student of History and Politics he is always conscious of the lessons that History is looking to teach us if we are willing to listen and learn. He is a yearly Camino pilgrim and this year finished the last Camino section into Santiago. He is a “glass half full” type of person and adopts a positive attitude to life in general.
Keith is in the position of being a Kerry, Munster and Arsenal supporter.
