Agile eHealth

Agile eHealth

The National Patient Portal was identified in The OGCIO’s (Office of the Government Chief Information Officer) Public Service ICT Strategy (https://ictstrategy.per.gov.ie/ictstrategy/files/Public%20Service%20ICT%20Strategy.pdf) as a priority project in the “Actions to help realise eHealth strategy objectives”.

Our Agile development team have been tasked with the development of a portal, designed for use by patients and their care givers. Its purpose is to allow Irish health service users gain access to health information provided by their health care providers. They will be able to see referrals that have been made on their behalf, allow them to view the scheduling and management of their appointments and will also facilitate the health service to provide patients with contextualised targeted health information about self-care and health promotion campaigns.
