Health Intelligence is the development and use of knowledge to support decision making to improve the health of the population. The Health Intelligence Team work to support the health system to make good decisions for better health and social care by using the evidence base of health. The objectives of the team are:
Health Intelligence Ireland exploits the potential of integrating geographical information system technologies, health datasets (census, HIPE, mortality etc) and statistical computations in a web-enabled and open source environment. It will provide role-based access to “health mapping” across the sector in support of service planning, epidemiology, emergency responding and research.
A public interface for infectious diseases is also planned. Following a restricted EU tendering process, the system development is being led by the HSE in partnership with UCD and NUI Maynooth. Seed funding was provided by the HRB and the HPSC (Health Protection Surveillance Cente), HSE. Contact Health Intelligence Ireland
