Planning is part of the process of management, essential to identifying needs, setting specific goals, developing objectives and mapping how these objectives will be accomplished. Under the Health Act 2004, the Health Service Executive is required to prepare a formal strategic plan every three years, known as the HSE's Corporate Plan. The current plan covers the years 2008 to 2011 and it sets out what we are seeking to achieve by 2011. It is possible to review the progress made in 2009 towards achieving our objectives in the Corporate Plan here.
Service / business planning is the means by which the organisation implements its Corporate Plan on an annual basis, it is possible to view this years Service Plan as well as previous years in National Service Plans.

Performance monitoring is an essential part of the planning cycle. It enables us to review progress against what we set out to achieve and sets the baseline for developing our corporate and annual plans. Monthly updates are provided by the HSE through the production of monthly Performance Reports. Under the Health Act 2004 [Section 37 (1)], the HSE is required to provide the Minister with an update on how the organisation has performed in any given year. This is done through the development and publication of the Annual Report.
The HSE has designed and implemented a performance information and improvement system called Healthstat to enable continuous improvement through reliable, timely and comprehensive information. Healthstat is a comprehensive databank of monthly performance information from Irish public health services, results are available on line through Healthstat.

Strategic planning is the process by which an organisation determines its long term strategy or direction. It involves a review of where the organisation is and where it wants to be within a given timeframe (its strategic objectives), identifies specific areas of focus (key result areas) to achieve those objectives and specifies how it will measure that achievement through key performance indicators.
