Ronan’s career has been in healthcare at a number of levels including management and eHealth implementation positions.
At an early stage, he recognised the need for information to make the right decisions and this started his journey into health IT. In more recent times he has embraced the concept of delivering value and benefits and had the opportunity to work on several projects from a benefits / value realisation perspective.
Currently he is working with the Clinical Excellence Commission setting the foundation for Clinical Analytics and Big Data in healthcare. For Ronan this is a very exciting and rewarding stage of the information journey, knowing that Analytics will make a significant contribution to improving healthcare.
