WHAT IS THE IIS?

The Integrated Information Service is the main Data Analytics Service for the wider Health Service Executive.

  1. Data Collection
  2. Data Processing (Moving, Consolidating, Transforming, Classifying etc)
  3. Data Automation (where appropriate)
  4. Data Analysis
  5. Dashboards

COVID19 PANDEMIC RESPONSE

Since the beginning of the Covid19 Pandemic the Integrated Information Service has expanded substantially. This was necessary to facilitate the analysis of the enormous volumes of data that was being generated as a result of the Pandemic Response.

The IIS has played key roles in analysing data and providing actionable information across the various programmes which the HSE has rolled out in response the pandemic including;

  • The initial Covid19 response in early 2020
  • The National Test and Trace Programme
  • The National Vaccination Programme
  • Assisting the Department of Health in issuing the Digital Covid Certificates
  • The flu and additional dose campaign

 

OUR PEOPLE AND THE TECHNOLOGIES THEY USE

At the IIS we are very lucky to have highly skilled, diverse and well educated people working as part of our team. Our people come from a wide variety of previous roles such as the Public Service, the Private Sector and Academia. They have experience in a wide variety of areas such as Data Engineering, Data Analysis, Data Visualisation, Solution Architecture, Software Development, Governance and Project Management.

In the IIS we use some of the latest Cloud Technologies to deliver the services required by the organisation. We use the Microsoft Azure Cloud extensively as well as SQL and Python to analyse data. We also use tools such as Power BI and QlickSense to visualise data.
