CeIC and the World of Standards
What is a Standard?
consider that when you think about a standard you should:
'Think of them as a formula that describes the best way of doing something'
CeIC & Standards
Are you new to health Standards? Yes
Do you have some some awareness of standards but don't know how they are used in ehealth? Yes

It provides a summary overview of how the CeIC is developing a living lab to help with teaching and educating of those individuals who are invested in the delivery of digital health developing a living lab as a teaching tool for digital health education.
We not only research standards as a core topic of interest , but we also investigate how standards can enhance the quality of the work that we are doing. Thus providing solid evidence to support our projects and consciously promoting standards in practice and research.
Through Education & Public Engagement (EPE) activities such as our recent standards symposium , we are committed to disseminate our knowledge and research with public and private organisations, and other linked research groups and centres.
We stand by the vision to share our research outputs in an open data science world. This is achieved through mapping formal requirements, using standards guidance processes, and shaping and influencing specifications for optimal impact and delivery of quality outputs.
Let’s meet some of the team that are working on Standards related projects

"Lets drop the jargon: A Symposium on Digitalisation in Healthcare, interoperability and standards" May 2022
The Centre for eIntegrated Care (CeIC) & Elite S presented a symposium on standards in healthcare at DCU. The day started with an education & operational theme showcasing current research at the CeIC. This was followed by presentations outlining the need to use standards in research and how we can benefit from expanding our use of standards in future research. In the afternoon a panel of experts from the Irish Platform for Patient Organisations, Science and Industry (IPOSSI) the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA), eHealth Ireland, University of Trento, National Health Intelligence Unit (NHIU), the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) & GS1 discussed the use of standards for the future development in Ireland.

Joint presentation from Dr Pamela Hussey & Dr Catriona Murphy talking about Models of Care and Interoperability & Standards in the CeIC
Dr Catriona Murphy explaining the NEX research. The overarching aim of the NEX project is to develop a technological solution that will enable older adults to remain living independently at home for as long as possible and facilitate caregivers to care for their family members or clients/patients in a non-intrusive manner.

The panel presented their thoughts on some questions that were put to them about standards. We will see how standards supported the rapid roll out of covid for the HSE and how standards can support the patient voice.
Kerry Ryder from the National Health Intelligence HSE opens up the conversation of standards, digital support and COVID
The International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP) provides an agreed set of terms that can be used to record the observations and interventions of nurses across the world. ICNP also provides a framework for sharing data about nursing and for comparing nursing practice across settings.
