It is a great place to work, there are so many opportunities to go further in the business.

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

40 New Jobs with eHealth Ireland

The digital transformation of the Health Service Executive (HSE)  is underway, with some 40 new jobs to be created by the HSE’s technology arm eHealth Ireland during 2016.

Spearheaded by CIO Richard Corbridge, eHealth Ireland has successfully deployed the Individual Health Identifier, moved 50pc of Ireland’s acute hospitals to an eReferral solution and began the complex journey of modernising the ‘digital fabric’ that supports the health system in 2015.

Before Christmas, Corbridge began a public consultation on the HSE’s plans for a new Electronic Health Record system. He explained that the new roles that the HSE now has permission to fill will focus across a range of deliveries with an ultimate goal of ensuring that, wherever possible, digital solutions can improve the way health is delivered in Ireland.

“The office of the CIO is focused on delivering the benefits of eHealth Ireland. The ability to add to the workforce with such a fundamental responsibility indicates the importance Government and the Department of Health are placing on eHealth as a tool for healthcare reform.”

The goals of eHealth Ireland were articulated in the Knowledge and Information Plan released in the spring of 2015.

The team then went on to deliver some of the items it considered as bringing the most benefit the quickest in 2015 and creating an operating model that would allow it to reflect the way in which care is delivered in the Irish healthcare system.

Ireland lags behind international averages on spend on healthcare IT, with 0.8pc of the HSE budget being made available for technology compared to an EU average of just over 2.5pc.
