Mission & activity

Our purpose

Our aim is to create a vibrant digital healthcare ecosystem that works for patients.

We promote a greater understanding of digital healthcare to build an optimal operating environment that is fit for today’s healthcare challenges and into the future. To do that, we focus on three broad areas:

  • Vision – we explain how digital healthcare can benefit patients, the public and the economy;
  • Connecting – we bring together organisations and individuals; and
  • Insight – we inform the rules that shape the digital health environment.

Our design principles for digital healthcare outline the four key elements we believe are central to achieving our mission: people first, fair system rules, free and open information and evidence-based practice.

We’re building on each of these themes through stakeholder engagement and media activity – take a look here to find out more.
