Integrated Information Service- IIS Team day

On Tuesday 10th October, 2023 the Integrated Information Service (IIS) held their 4th all-staff team day in the Liffey Suite at the Ashling Hotel, Dublin.
Integrated Information Service (IIS) looked back over the last 6 months’ achievements and also to future plans.

A further goal of the day was to introduce new staff and reconnect the wider teams and functions given the rapid growth of the team over the last 4 years.

The event was opened by IIS Delivery Director Tom Laffan who welcomed the team and spoke of the work which occurred over the previous 6 months, the next 6 months, and the challenges and opportunities.

During the course of the morning session presentations were provided by Mark Bagnell, General Manager, PMO, Strategy & Data Governance; Niamh Crossan, General Manager, Data Operations; Paula Kavanagh, General Manager, Health Performance Visualisation Platform (HPVP) with the assistance of Alan Heneghan and Jackie Kirrane, Change Managers.
The afternoon session presentations were provided by Ide O’Shaughnessy, Access, Acute Operations, who spoke about the role of data in the delivery of timely, equitable, quality care, and making our data visual and meaningful and providing the tools for our hospitals to “Tell” a compelling story.


Mark Donovan (photographed above) of Mark Donovan & Associates spoke about “Who is the only person we can change?”.
In this practical, thought provoking, energetic session we got to hear Mark’s unique perspective on what stress is and what it isn’t, the key to dealing with stress, the importance of knowing our low level signs, why most people only deal with the symptoms of stress and why it’s vital to deal with the cause to ensure our on-going happiness and life success.
Olivia Gartlan, Senior Project Manager presented 'Digital Health & Social Care Strategic Framework and Implementation Plan briefing'.

We were joined on the day by our colleagues Kate Hanlon, eHealth Communications and Janis Nolan, Training & Development who took photographs throughout the day.
The Integrated Information Service (IIS) Team day proved to be a great success and was an excellent networking opportunity for staff across the division.
