Dublin-based alternative health organisation alternativehealth is creating a new health information project in Ireland.
Dublin-based Alternative Health Information Project (AHIP) will be an organisation to build a more holistic and integrated health system in the city of Dublin.
AHAIP founder and executive director, Richard McGowan, said it will enable the city to be a centre of innovation and the development of new solutions for a wide range of health conditions.
“The way that the health system is set up now in Ireland, we’re not really able to get away from it.”
So a lot of people who have had the worst of it are the ones who have the most difficulty, because it’s not really their health and it’s very hard to move forward when you’ve got this lack of knowledge about what’s going on.
“That’s where the AHAIPS project is really coming in.”
It will be a collaboration with people from across the health care sector and with the city itself, and it will be providing people with more information, more relevant information, so that they can make decisions on how they are going to improve their own health.
“I think it will really be a huge contribution to the city.”
The AHAITS project is being led by the health information administrator of Dublin, Richard McEwen.
The project aims to develop a more comprehensive, accurate and accessible health information platform, and will allow for a seamless and streamlined flow of information for all residents.AHAIPS executive director Richard McGwan said the project will provide a framework for information-sharing and collaboration between different health systems in Dublin.
“This project will be based around providing a clear, clear and accessible way of connecting the various parts of Dublin city to the rest of the country and to the world, and this will allow a more seamless and more effective communication and collaboration process,” Mr McGowan said.
Mr McGowan’s group is hoping to attract up to 5,000 participants over the course of the first year.
The organisation is also launching an online toolkit for people who are interested in participating in the project, and has also developed an app which will be used to manage information and make information available to those who have a need for it.
Mr McEwan said it was vital that health information and information technology were integrated across the country.
“What we want to do is to ensure that everyone in Ireland is getting the information that they need and we’re really aiming to achieve that by making this information available for everybody,” he said.
“But the project is also about enabling a better communication, better information exchange, better health information to be created, so we want people to have a more informed and informed health, but also a more integrated and more integrated health care.”
