We are seeking feedback on the development of draft recommendations on the ICT Enablement of Older Persons Services.
HIQA is developing recommendations to ensure that an older person’s health information can be shared safely and effectively between systems across their care journey and to address the needs of all the healthcare professionals involved, while placing the older person at the centre of care. The recommendations cover four important aspects of ICT enablement of services for older persons: Strategy and governance; Vision and roadmap; Standardised sharing of information; and User engagement.
In covering these areas, it is hoped that the recommendations can acknowledge the excellent work done to date in a broad range of areas, while also identifying deficiencies in Ireland. In collaboration with stakeholders, the recommendations aim to outline a suite of agreed measures that will contribute to the successful ICT enablement of older persons’ services in Ireland, and a sound foundation for broader national eHealth goals under Sláintecare.
