Blackrock Health has made a €25 million investment in a new, groupwide, digital transformation programme. The investment introduces the very latest in electronic health record systems, MEDITECH, and Ireland’s first digital engagement platform that will enable connectivity between patients, consultants and GPs.
These innovations will serve to connect patient data for the 325,000 patients Blackrock Health treats annually across its hospitals, enhancing clinical care, improving patient safety and freeing up more time for clinicians to focus on patient care by removing the burden of administration.
The digital transformation project will take three years to implement and will create 60 new jobs across the group as a direct result of the investment. The partnership builds on the successful rollout of MEDITECH’s electronic health record in Galway Clinic in 2017, the first of its kind in Ireland.
