An article by Dr Tom OíSullivan from the University of Limerick on Health Data in Ireland has revealed how health data can inform a lot of your life.
“The health data that we get from health records is often not the most relevant information for us.
It can be an indication of a person’s age, and if they are overweight or obese, it may be the difference between being able to get the surgery that they want or not,” said Dr Oí Sullivan.
Dr Oínnear said that people often don’t understand the value of the health data, so it’s important that people are aware of the impact it has on their health.
He said the health records were a valuable resource that people need to understand.
Dr Ollen said the information that people receive from the health record is important, but that they have to take into account how it relates to their health, and that includes the data being collected from the individual.
“The Health Service Executive, as the organisation that collects this information, is always striving to ensure that the information they collect is relevant and accurate, and we have to make sure that we keep the information up to date,” said the University professor.
When you compare health records from different countries, you will see that there are different types of health data.
For example, a person might be a health records collector in the United States and have their health data from the United Kingdom, but it’s the same information collected from different health records in Ireland.
The information collected by the United Nations Population Fund and the Health and Social Care Information Centre is different.
Dr Tom Ollenn said that the main problem that people have is that people don’t know what they are getting out of the data.
“This is where the problems arise,” said Ollnear.
According to Dr Ollsans research, the data collected by different organisations may be of higher quality than the health information that is collected by organisations.
“It’s not surprising that when people are making decisions about health and wellbeing they have a different set of data to analyse.”
In addition to the individual data, there is the broader health data which is collected from a wide range of sources including hospitals, GP surgeries, health professionals, and people’s health records,” said Professor Ollas.
However, in the past, there was a lot more of that information available, so when the health systems had to make decisions, they would rely on the data that they had.
Dr Jim McIlveen from the Institute of Health Information (IHI) in Galway said that health data has been an important resource for people in Ireland for a long time.”
Health records have been a vital tool for people, because they can provide insight into their health,” said McIlvain.”
When we have a population that is ill, they are likely to have health records that are being collected.
“We also have the potential to have a lot less health information than we would otherwise, so people need more information from the data than they might have.”
“Health data also has the potential of being useful to people who have been diagnosed with a condition such as a heart condition or cancer, so there is a great opportunity for health data to be used to help inform patients,” added McIlviain.
Dr McIlvaill said that as a community we all need to be aware of what is happening to our health.
“There are a lot that we need to know,” he said.
In addition, Dr McIlvan said that while there has been some improvement over the years, we still have a long way to go.
“Over the past decade we have seen the emergence of a new generation of health information technology, which means that health records have become increasingly more powerful and sophisticated, and this means that they now have greater access to a wider range of information than ever before,” he added.
“However, the challenges in terms of keeping up with the data continue, as it’s now becoming increasingly difficult for organisations to keep up with all the changes that have occurred in the information technology landscape.”
