National survey finds public welcomes move to electronic health system, but consent and security concerns must be addressed

The Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA), the Department of Health and the HSE have conducted Ireland’s first national public engagement on health information to ask the public their views on how their health information should be collected, used and shared.

Over 1,300 people told their views, saying they are happy for information about their health to be collected, used and shared electronically; however, they want to know that access to and security of the information will be protected. 

Please see a snapshot of findings below, and an infographic summary of the findings attached.
