Tech Excellence Awards 2024

SCS-CMS Team Win at the Tech Excellence Awards

In this year’s Tech Excellence Awards the Specialised Care Services Clinical Management System (SCS-CMS) Programme has been announced as winners of the IT professional team of the year. The Tech Excellence Awards represent the most prestigious achievements across the technology sector, recognising the skills, innovation and ingenuity of the industry and its people. The Specialised Care Services Clinical Management System (SCS-CMS) Programme sits within Community Health and is committed to revolutionising healthcare delivery in Ireland through technology.

The project “Making Specialist Services Electronic – Paper to Digital” involved the parallel implementation of a patient Electronic Health Record, namely TrakCare from the vendor InterSystems, in the National Rehabilitation Hospital and in parallel in the National Forensic Mental Health Services. 
This is a fantastic achievement for the SCS-CMS Team and we wish all the team a huge congratulations on their well-deserved win.

Mary Cooke, Delivery Director for Community Health, Technology and Transformation HSE:
"This is a great achievement to have both the National Rehabilitation Hospital and the National Forensics Mental Health Service live on SCS-CMS. This programme of work commenced pre-covid and I would like to express my appreciation and congratulate everyone who has been involved at the different stages of the journey from both Community Health and the wider Technology and Transformation team. 
The strong partnership approach adopted by the staff of the National Rehabilitation Hospital, National Forensics Mental Health Service and Technology and Transformation enabled the successful implementation of SCS-CMS, which will enhance the experience of both service users and the staff delivering the services into the future."
