eHealth and Care

E-Health and Social Care is delivering a programme of improvement for the Health and Social Services in Northern Ireland. It is about supporting change in the way the HSC delivers its services to patients and service users for the better by making the best use of information and communication technologies. E-Health and Social Care is more than simply giving people access to new computer systems. It also includes procuring, developing and implementing new integrated ICT infrastructure and systems for all HSC organisations, such as the secure HSC network and regional data centres, to support a modern, more efficient health service for the 21st century.
