It oversees many changes with regards to the program functionality, and is dedicated and pro-active in the evolution of this widely used Practice software program.
The overall objectives of the Group are to ensure that users of all capabilities get the most out of the program to enhance record keeping within General Practice.

The CME (Continuous Medical Education)/ CAS (Competence Assurance System) which GP's are now required to do is much more straightforward if a software program within practice is designed to extract Audit Material with ease. HealthOne does exactly that.
As changes occur within the Health Service, HealthOne is a program which evolves well to these changes, and often could be considered one of the leading programs. With a very strong, and driven User-group, the program adapts well.
2015 has seen huge changes in Healthcare in Ireland with the emphasis being on 'Cycles of Care' for Type 2 Diabetes and Asthma. to name but a few.
