The app provides users with access to information on many of the services available at the hospital, including facilities, wards and site map, visitor information, contact details for a particular clinic or consultant, videos featuring medical experts in areas such as rheumatoid arthritis or intensive care, and news and updates on the hospital and its work. While Tallaght is taking the lead in Ireland, the hospital was motivated by the success of similar apps in other healthcare systems, such as the UK and US, where such apps are increasingly the norm.
The app is free to use, available on both iOS and Android, and can be downloaded from the App store or Play store.
Pictured L to R at the launch of the app were Mr Vincent Coyne, volunteer; Ms Lucy Nugent, Deputy CEO, Tallaght Hospital; Ms Catherine Heaney, Chairperson, Tallaght Hospital Patient Community and Advisory Council; and Mr David Wall, Director of ICT.
