Empowering Patients

Digital health empowering people / IPPOSI

Derick Mitchell, CEO, the Irish Platform for Patient Organisations, Science and Industry (IPPOSI)

“Digital health traditionally tends to be looked at from the point of view of IT. In fact, digital health is far more than IT; it's about people and the voice of the patient. It’s about identifying new ways of solving the problems that exist in our healthcare, creating better experiences for both patients and the Health Care Professionals.”

Ava Battles, Chairperson, the Irish Platform for Patient Organisations, Science and Industry (IPPOSI), “The best solutions come from the people who are the frontline workers. Those who have direct experience of where there are gaps or deficiencies in the current health service… So a lot of these digital solutions would benefit from the input of patients at the earliest possible stage.”
