Health Service Executive - The Largest Transformation Programme in the History of the Irish State

The Health Service Executive (Ireland)

The Health Service Executive provides all of Ireland’s public health services in hospitals and communities across the country.

“In the past, we relied on desktop type project management tools with no interoperability between those programs, which can be slow and unreliable. Now, we are bringing in multiple systems into a single network technology environment, not all of the organizations are HSE and therefore, they don’t have access to the same networks. By going to a cloud-based solution like Cora PPM, it has allowed us to bring all of the different stakeholders throughout the health family together to collaborate and work on the programs as they need to do, with access to the same tools, the same information, at the same time. We have management information from the reporting functionality which helps us make decisions and manage our risks and issues.”
