Information and Communications Technology

ICT Department Introduction

Information delivery is crucial to health professionals and patients for the delivery of their care. The ICT Department at Tallaght Hospital provides a range of ICT services to support and enable patient care.

We believe the demand for easy access to shared data, applications, flexible communication methods and a responsive support team are key to integrated patient care. By working in partnership with Hospital staff, patients, external health professionals and agencies ICT can better understand current and future needs, identify and implement the correct solutions in partnership with clinical staff.
