Council of Clinical Information Officers


The Council of Clinical Information Officers has been established to provide clinical governance to the delivery of eHealth solutions across the Irish Healthcare system. Its role is primarily as an advisory group, with primary governance oversight provided by the Office of the CIO and the eHealth Ireland committee.

It is composed of clinical leaders, led by the Chief Clinical Information Officer, and those with hands-on successful programme delivery experience in the Irish healthcare system. There are deep and diverse experiences and perspectives represented on the Council which will support the development of local and national level programmes such as the Electronic Health Record Programme.

Yvonne GoffIt is a credit to the clinical will of Ireland when considering how strongly the Council of Clinical Information Officers has grown. We have grown our membership both nationally and internationally, we have positively contributed to upcoming legislation, the development of national programmes and the further advancement of the national eHealth Strategy. By representing the clinical perspective, Council members can make informatics something which clinicians do rather than something which is done to them.
