Draft recommendations on a Model for Health Information Standards in Ireland

The Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) is holding a public consultation to give people an opportunity to provide feedback on the draft recommendations on a Model for Health Information Standards in Ireland.

Your views are very important to us, and we will carefully assess all feedback received and use it to help develop the final recommendations which will be submitted to the Minister for Health for approval.

Please note: the focus for this consultation is the content and structure of the draft recommendations. The final wording, design and layout of the recommendations will be developed after the public consultation. We welcome responses to all questions, and there will be an opportunity at the end of the survey to provide any additional general comments.

The closing date for the public consultation is
5pm, Tuesday 2nd August 2022.
