2018 will hopefully become a landmark year for eHealth in Ireland as the HSE moves to progress the national electronic health record programme forward. Over time this will result in the potential for greater levels of access to health records, and the data contained within. There are huge benefits to the sharing of this information between patients’ and the carers; between primary, community and acute care providers; and between patients and researchers. However, such sharing must be done in a controlled and open fashion.
There is a risk that recent legislation will result in an overly enthusiastic restriction of data sharing and this may not be in the best interests of the patient or the service. A balance must be sought. We were taught as children that Sharing was Caring. In the eHealth world Sharing can be Caring in lots of ways, and this years HISI conference takes that as an overarching theme and will explore it across many aspects. I do hope that you can partake in the conference and engage in what we hope will be a lively, interesting and fun event.
