On Thursday, 30th April 2015, Healthlink hosted an event in Croke Park Conference Centre to celebrate sending a record 10 million messages in 2014. The 10 millionth message was a laboratory report sent from St. James’s Hospital to Dr. Miriam Carey, The Iveagh Medical Clinic, Dublin 12.

The event was attended by Kathleen Lynch, Minister for Primary Care, Social Care & Mental Health who presented prizes to Mary Leech, Practice Manager at The Iveagh Medical Clinic and John Gibbons, Laboratory Manager at St. James’s Hospital.

Over 52 million messages have been delivered by Healthlink since the project initially commenced in the Mater Hospital in 1995.

In her speech, Minister Lynch said "I would like to pay tribute to Healthlink for the invaluable contribution it has made through many ICT health initiatives over the years.  It has played a key role in modernising our health services, enabling effective integration between Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Care, which has resulted in tangible benefits for health service users across the country."
