HealthIRL migration

The HealthIRL migration programme will migrate users, devices and mailboxes from the 8 regional-based domains to a central shared domain called HealthIRL. This enables the HSE to have a single view of resources, providing identity and access best practice, and centralised governance.

HealthIRL migration is crucial for cloud and cyber security, and is a key recommendation of the HSE’s cyber-attack post-incident review report.

Preparing for migration

The HealthIRL migration programme is technically challenging and complex, unpicking 30 years of legacy issues across regional areas. It may reveal unique issues as the programme deploys across the country. Our Technology Office commits to addressing these issues promptly, and supporting teams throughout migration.

Users at every level of the organisation should prioritise HealthIRL migration when in your area.
