I recently had the honour of speaking at the eHealth in Revolution conference at Dublin Castle. The conference is the brainchild of Professor Ken McDonald and his team at The Heartbeat Trust, Ireland's National Heart Failure charity.  

The conference boasted an impressive line up of both national and international speakers, all of whom have the common interest of using technology to make the delivery of healthcare more effective and efficient. Notable speakers included Dr. Paul Grundy (IBM), Dr. Evan Muse (Scripps Healthcare) and Prof. Alan Maisel, (University of California)

Proceedings began on Thursday evening with a talk from Minister for Health, Simon Harris and from then on a steady stream of experts in ehealth took to the stage. Topics ranged from data protection to heart failure virtual consults to interesting panel sessions asking the question of what ehealth can and does deliver.

I had the opportunity to speak on Friday the 16th and spoke to the audience of mainly health professionals, researchers and industry about, "eHealth in the Real World - Trials and Tribulations". Thankfully our talk was warmly received and it was great to meet and connect with so many enthusiastic attendees who really understood the need for our work.
