Review of information management practices in the HSE Computerised Infectious Disease Reporting (CIDR) system

Status: Published on

This review is part of an overall review programme being undertaken by HIQA to assess compliance with the Information Management Standards in all major national health and social care data collections within the HSE in Ireland.

The recent Sláintecare report and implementation strategy on the future of healthcare identifies the importance of quality health data and information as a key enabler to drive improvements in the quality of healthcare in Ireland. It is, therefore, crucially important that information is managed in the most effective way possible in order to ensure a high-quality safe health service.

Ultimately, the review programme aims to drive quality improvements by identifying areas of good practice and areas where improvements are necessary across national data collections
