Let’s make health care better (Check out our Covid Ireland guide)
Today, health care systems are under so much pressure as people are living longer with more complex needs and higher expectations. Health care professionals want to deliver excellent care, but find it increasingly difficult with cut backs in budgets and patients/clients who want to have more of a say in their own care. So open health is seen as a way of making this possible.
We can learn more from each other when we are open. Being open to change and feedback, knowing no one person has all the answers or is always right is critical to creating a supportive environment where people are allowed to learn, correct mistakes quickly, collaborate and enjoy coming to work. Open health is about combining existing strengths with new technologies and creating health solutions that work for every body.
