The exclusive, invite-only Executive Leadership Summit Ireland (Dublin) will unite senior health IT leaders from across Ireland's health and care system to explore the very latest in health IT.

The day’s agenda focuses on identifying and implementing solutions that have the potential to transform patient care and our speakers are among the brightest minds working in health and care IT. Attendees will:

  • Learn how the Health Service Executive is innovating to build a better health service in Ireland
  • Hear from leaders from other healthcare systems about how we lift cultural barriers to allow digital change to happen
  • Be inspired with a leadership development workshop led by internationally-renowned health IT leadership organisation CHIME.


Three carefully curated tracks will unite cutting edge supplier solutions with respected health strategists from Ireland and overseas. The tracks are:

  • Using innovation to build a better health service in Ireland
  • Overcoming barriers to digital change: international insights
  • The empowered patient: how patient centred design principles lead to success


The agenda is enhanced by the opportunity to network and build relationships over lunch and dinner. Full agenda information will be available shortly.

The building blocks the HSE has put in place in 2016 have begun a journey of digital transformation and the HIMSS event is recognition of this and the leadership associated with its achievement. I am delighted that speakers from across the globe will come to Dublin and hear of Ireland's progress on embracing digital health to support a safer, more efficient and patient-centred service."
