Lorraine Smyth

HSE
Digital Transformation Leader

This candidate’s submission is highly impressive. The organisation she works for is complex with various legacy systems and she is driving forward thinking approaches with digital technology. Through her studies and experience, she brings innovative solutions to complex problems. Her work during the COVID19 pandemic led to better patient care and more availability of hospital beds as some patients could be monitored remotely. Judges were in awe of the use of remote diagnostics via video and drone delivery for prescription drugs to remote areas. They agree that this was a real glimpse of the future that this individual is pioneering. Her work has already received critical acclaim and her resilience is clear as she accomplished all of this and more all while battled through her own health challenges. She is an incredible woman, professional, leader and role model for us all.
