Information for the Public

The IHI is being introduced in our Health Service. The IHI is the number that will be used to safely identify an individual and their health information when using a health service. The IHI is only used as an identifier, it does not contain any medical information. There is no need for individuals to remember their IHI, however the HSE understands that any individual has a right to obtain their IHI.

Individuals who wish to request their IHI should consult the guide available here.
