Health Service Executive in Ireland appoints new CIO

Professor Martin Curley, who is currently leading the Mastercard Advisors Global Digital Practice, will become the Chief Information Officer role of the Health Service Executive in Ireland.

[London, UK] Professor Martin Curley has been appointed as the new Chief Information Officer (CIO) of the Health Service Executive (HSE) in Ireland.

Jane Carolan had taken over the role on an interim basis late last year, in addition to her responsibilities as National Director for the Health Business Services.

Professor Curley is currently leading the Mastercard Advisors Global Digital Practice, which he joined after more than seven years of establishing Intel’s network of R&D labs across the European region.

He is also a founder of the Innovation Value Institute, which provides an IT capability maturity framework to help organisations devise ‘more robust’ IT strategies.

Tony O’Brien, HSE Director General, said Professor Curley is a ‘proven thought leader in the application of data to provide innovative solutions’.

“The HSE recognises the importance of data and information in delivering patient-centred health outcomes. Martin’s experience and innovative ideas will enable us to continue to build on these outcomes,” O’Brien added.
