Ireland a step closer to "visionary" healthcare system:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Ireland has reached a "fundamental landmark" in the modernisation of its healthcare services, with the appointment of the person who will lead the new Health Information and Quality Authority. Pat McGrath was this week appointed to chair the HIQA, which, subject to the provisions of the Health Bill (currently being drafted), will be the focal point for the country's health technology assessment, healthcare information and quality-assurance programmes. Irish healthcare will be underpinned, says the government, by a policy to ensure that it is "based on evidence-supported best practice". The appointment of the remaining board members is to be announced shortly.
