MyHealth Digital Platform

In response to the COVID Pandemic, the HSE rapidly mobilised and redirected many of its ICT/eHealth resources to support the delivery of services. This resulted in various disparate technical solutions being deployed at an accelerated pace across the health service. As the public health response to the pandemic evolved and evidence and knowledge developed, the A2I-HIDs programme was tasked with standing-up a national public facing portal, the Covid Services Front Door, to enable individuals throughout the country to book PCR tests and order Antigen Test Kits. In January 2022 a project team was brought together to develop the solution and the portal went live on 4th May 2022. It is the first public facing digital platform that A2i-HIDs has delivered to date.  Since then, the portal has onboarded a broad range of service pathways and it has been rebranded to the MyHealth Digital Platform.
